The U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) and AMIDEAST are pleased to announce this year’s recruitment for the Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program.
The Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program is a MEPI initiative for capable and highly motivated high school seniors in the Middle East and North Africa who are from underserved backgrounds.
The program will provide four-year university scholarships and internship opportunities at elite institutions of higher learning in the Middle East to students who have the potential to become leaders.
The program intends to nurture leadership skills and the spirit of civic engagement and volunteerism among outstanding university-age students at the American University of Beirut and the Lebanese American University. Selected students will join the 289 Tomorrow’s Leaders already studying at these universities.
Scholarship recipients may pursue an eligible undergraduate degree in a selected field at one of the two host institutions.
In addition to their studies, recipients will be expected to engage in community service activities and internships. Limited English- language training will be provided for some participants.
Participation in the program includes travel, academic fees for four years of university at AUB or LAU, a study abroad experience in the U.S., accident and sickness insurance, housing, and a monthly allowance during the school year.
