Kuwait-America Foundation Inducted Into Georgetown University's 1789 Society

The 1789 Society is Georgetown University's most prestigious fellowship, comprising individuals and organizations that are examples to the entire Georgetown family. Membership in the society recognizes Georgetown's most generous benefactors-individuals, families, corporations, foundations, and organizations that have contributed $1 million or more to the university. In 2013, KAF provided a generous gift to Georgetown, creating the Kuwait-America Foundation Endowed Scholarship Fund. The fund will enable students of great merit and promise from the Arab world to complete graduate studies at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies within the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service.

1789 Society members are patrons of the ideals of Georgetown's founder, Bishop John Carroll-faith, service to the world, and intellectual inquiry in the Jesuit tradition, and help secure and strengthen Georgetown's position among the finest institutions of higher education in the nation, and indeed, the world. Through it's "Educate and Empower" gala dinner in 2013, KAF created the Kuwait-America Foundation Endowed Scholarship Fund. The fund will enable students of great merit and promise from the Arab world to complete graduate studies at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies within the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. Sharing a mutual vision, Georgetown and the Kuwait-America Foundation will educate future generations of leaders inspired to work toward global peace and prosperity.
