Who are we

We are Nuffic West Asia and North Africa: Our office in Jordan regionally supports access and quality of education, as well as development of knowledge and skills through scholarship and capacity building programmes.


At our office we manage the following programmes:

  • Orange Knowledge Programme: This programme is a global capacity building programme funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It aims to contribute to a society’s sustainable and inclusive development by offering access to education and training to professionals and organisations.
  • MENA Scholarship Programme: The MENA Scholarship Programme (MSP) aims to build bridges through knowledge by offering opportunities for capacity building within organisations in the Middle East and North Africa. It enables young professional impact makers to take part in short courses in the Netherlands, and it facilitates tailor made training for organisations in the region.
  • EDU-Syria: A programme for Syrian refugees in Jordan as well as underprivileged Jordanians, providing access to higher education and the labour market, through a small grants programme.
  • HOPES-LEB: This programme contributes to prospects for refugees from Syria in Lebanon, as well as vulnerable Lebanese youth. HOPES-LEB is short for Higher and Further Education Opportunities and Perspectives for Syrians and vulnerable youth in Lebanon. It is funded by the European Union.
