DEADLINE MARCH 7, 2015.
We are pleased to announce the Coca-Cola MENA Scholarship Program for 2015.
The Coca-Cola Company & the US Department of State are once again partnering to sponsor 100 university students from 6 countries across the Middle East, North Africa and Near Asia to attend a month-long business program at Indiana University’s prestigious Kelley School of Business, one of the top ranked business programs in the United States.
This multi-faceted, immersion program is designed to give a group of students the opportunity to learn about business education through an accelerated curriculum. The program, which begins in June 2015, is fully funded including travel to and within the United States, accommodations, meals, and university and visa fees. In addition to the residential course at Indiana University, the Coca-Cola MENA Scholars will also be hosted at the US Department of State in Washington DC and at the global headquarters of The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, GA.
TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE 2015 MENA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM, EACH CANDIDATE MUST:
- Have Jordanian nationality and currently reside in Jordan and have a valid passport for international travel
- Be currently enrolled in a university and between the ages of 18-24 years old
- Be fluent in English and have a basic knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint)
- Be able to travel from June 20th/21st through July 24th/25th, 2014 (during Ramadan)
- Note that preference will be given to candidates who have limited or no experience of travel to the United States.
ALL CANDIDATES MUST:
- Fully complete the 2015 MENA Scholarship Application.
- Must submit a copy of official transcript from your university
- Must submit a legible electronic copy of the picture/information page in your passport
- All materials must be received by March 7, 2015. Please upload all completed materials in the Scholarship website.
Please note that the majority of the program in the United States will take place during the holy month of Ramadan and that the travel dates cannot be amended. Qualification as a Coca-Cola MENA Scholar will be dependent upon providing a signed consent form (from a parent or guardian if the student is under the age of 21) confirming that he or she understands that the program will take place during Ramadan. The organizers at Indiana University, the State Department and at Coca-Cola in Atlanta will make suitable accommodations for students who are fasting or otherwise observing the holy month.
Please note that this program is co-educational and equal opportunity is afforded to male and female applicants; and that, because the coursework is taught in English, proficiency in English is required.
