About the Jordanian Graduate Student Scholarship (JGSS)
On the occasion of ACOR’s 40th anniversary in June 2008, the newly created Jordanian Graduate Student Scholarship program was announced. This scholarship program will contribute to the training of the future generations of Jordanian academics in research fields related to Jordan’s cultural heritage.
This scholarship is limited to Jordanian citizens currently enrolled in either a Master’s or Doctoral program in a Jordanian university. An important component of this scholarship program is the potential of ongoing support for exemplary students. Unlike all of ACOR’s foreign research fellowships, which have limitations on how frequently applicants may apply, these scholarships will be open for immediate repeat funding. Student awardees who demonstrate excellent progress in their programs will be eligible to reapply during each year of their continued enrollment in their graduate program. Priority of consideration will be given to the applications received each year from this pool of candidates.
The inaugural year of this program was the 2009–2010 ACOR fellowship cycle. Members of the ACOR Board of Trustees donated generously to fund this program.
