About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


Qatar Scholarship – EAA/Luminus Technical University College

In response to the complex challenges Jordan is facing as a result of the economic impacts of COVID-19 and the ongoing refugee crisis, in October 2021 Al Fakhoora partnered with Luminus Technical University to provide access to higher education programmes for 941 deserving, capable yet underserved Syrian, Palestinian and vulnerable Jordanian youth residing in Jordan.

The influx of Syrian refugees into Jordan over the past decade has resulted in around 1.3 million registered and unregistered Syrian refugees in the country. Syrian refugees account for more than 10 percent of Jordan’s total population, placing an additional strain on Jordan’s already struggling economy, healthcare, and education systems.

Social inequalities persist for youth across the country, while poverty, lack of affordable and safe transportation, poor education quality, limited professional opportunities, and administrative issues with enrolment are all barriers to education. As of 2021, only 34.4% of youth in Jordan were enrolled in higher education.

The Qatar Scholarship – EAA / Luminus Technical University College (LTUC) partnership provides access to high-quality educational programmes of study, including diplomas, associate degrees, and bachelor degrees, for underserved Syrian, Palestinian, and Jordanian youth.  50% of the total scholarships are allocated for beneficiaries who are designated Syrian and Palestinian refugees, while 50% of the scholarships are allocated for marginalized Jordanian nationals.
