Tunisia Community College Scholarship Program


The Tunisia Community College Scholarship Program (TCCSP), part of the Department of State’s Thomas Jefferson Scholarships, offers full, one-year scholarships for young Tunisians studying at technical schools (ISETs) in Tunisia.

Program participants pursue non-degree study at accredited U.S. community colleges in fields directly related to future growth sectors of Tunisia’s economy: agriculture, applied engineering, business management and administration, early childhood education, information technology, media, and tourism and hospitality.
