The US Embassy of Morocco is informing Moroccan students that each year the Moroccan-American Commission awards Master’s scholarships for Moroccan post-licence students to pursue a master’s degree in the United States. These scholarships are funded by the governments of Morocco and the United States.
For academic year 2020-2021, applications are due May 31, 2019.
Please make sure to select 2020-2021 application cycle so that your application will be considered and submitted to our staff.
The Study Grant is for up to two years of study for a master’s degree.
Applicants complete an on-line application form which includes a personal essay, an essay on why they want to study in America, three letters of recommendation, transcripts of their academic record (relevé de notes), and a variety of personal information. Applicants must present scores of the TOEFL and GRE exams (GMAT in the case of business) and, if selected for an interview, be available in Rabat when called.
Those selected are called “Fulbright nominees,” and they are then placed in the hands of AMIDEAST and learn how to apply to American universities and are given the choice of four university placements. Nominees hear the results of their university applications in April, and AMIDEAST and MACECE make the final choice among the four universities for the nominee. This placement is then approved by Washington and upon approval, they are then full-fledged Fulbright grantees and depart for the USA in the summer of the year following application.
