To provide chances for vulnerable Jordanians and Syrian refugees, Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development – ARDD in cooperation with Yayasan Hasanah (Hasanah) Foundation is offering a total of 15 two-year scholarships to help talented students in need to obtain a technical or vocational  diploma at Al-Balqa Applied University in Jordan.
