Deadline extended: scholarships in the U.S for Afghan students

Deadline extended

Although we continue to receive applications for our scholarship program, we have decided to extend our deadline from November 15 to December 15, 2011. A significant number of our applicants need more time to prepare the application, particularly the TOEFL/IELTS component of it.

If you have already taken the test and are awaiting your results, please go ahead and submit everything else now and send in your TOEFL scores when you receive them. For the quickest processing, please have ETS send your TOEFL scores directly to us at the following address:

Foundation for Afghanistan
1212 New York Ave., NW, Suite 825
Washington, DC 20005

Also, please read the following information carefully as it contains answers to most of the frequently asked questions:

  • Please note that if you are registered to take the TOEFL or IELTS in January, you may have to apply for next year’s scholarships. There will be no further extension of our deadline for this year.
  • If you have already submitted all of your application materials, you should have received an email confirmation. We will contact you within a week after December 15 if you are shortlisted.
  • We cannot, under any circumstances, waive the TOEFL/IELTS/SAT requirement, even if you have certificates about your English language skills. We only require international TOEFL, not institutional scores.
If you still have questions, please email us at
Best of luck!

    Dear Sir

    Berea College doesn’t require SAT for Afghan Students as long as they submit their High School Certificate.

    If we dont have the SAT result, can we still apply for this scholarship?
