About English Access Microscholarship Program (Access)
The English Microscholarship Program (Access) is a two-year global scholarship program supported by the U.S. Department of State that provides a foundation of English language skills to bright, economically disadvantaged students (ages 18-13) through after school classes. The program also features activities designed to enhance leadership and technology skills, and to promote U.S. culture and values, as well as intensive summer classes.
The opportunity to increase their English language proficiency will be offered to 500 teenagers (25 classes of 20 public high-school students across 5 regions in Lebanon) through 360 hours of English as a second language. In addition, all expenses related to the program such as instructions books and materials, laptops, transportation and accommodation will be covered.

The program will also include capacity building and mentoring for 200 teachers across five regions in Lebanon over two years. Finally, The Access Alumni component aims to support Access alumni across Lebanon over two years by providing them with training and small grants to equip them with skills and resources to better serve their communities.
