Amman landscapeIf you have ever wanted to volunteer in Jordan, Lebanon or Turkey, you can now apply for a scholarship to help out with your volunteer expenses.

America's Unofficial Ambassadors is offering scholarships to GeoVisions' volunteers in Jordan, Lebanon or Turkey.  Scholarships up to $5000 can be used to cover program fees and/or travel.  Applications for the scholarship are being taken through August 31, 2011.  The funds can be used for 2011 or 2012 program dates.

You can read about the Mosaic Scholarship and then there are links to the rules and regulations, and the application.

IstanbulThe underlying premise of America’s Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA) is that private American citizens have to do more to improve America’s relationship with the Muslim World.  Read more about AUA here.

By December of 2012, AUA plans to have 1000 Americans commit to at least 1 week of service in the Muslim World.  We are very proud to be an approved organization of AUA, and our programs in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey rank high enough to qualify for the scholarship.

Contact us if you have questions. You should work your application with GeoVisons along with the application for the scholarship.

We welcome any comments about the programs or the scholarship.
