Funded by the American people through the U.S. Agency for International Development and administered by American Councils for International Education, the KAEF Program is a perpetual education fund that allows eligible/qualified residents of Kosovo the opportunity to

Shortly after establishment of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo in 1999, USAID created the Kosovo Business Finance Fund (KBFF) to foster economic development and growth in Kosovo. This fund was used to establish the American Bank of Kosovo, a commercial bank that in the following years built up a loan portfolio and a successful level of deposits. The sale of these assets enabled the creation of the Kosovo American Education Fund (KAEF).
