Plazo de solicitud: diciembre 1st 2018

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. Programa de Becas para Líderes del Mañana es una iniciativa de MEPI para personas mayores capacitadas y altamente motivadas en el Medio Oriente y el Norte de África que provienen de entornos desatendidos. El programa proporcionará becas universitarias de cuatro años y oportunidades de pasantías en instituciones selectas de educación superior en el Medio Oriente a estudiantes que tengan el potencial de convertirse en líderes.

Eligible students include men and women who represent the region’s cultural, religious, and geographic diversity and are from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, who could otherwise gain admission to, but would be unable to afford, four years of college at an American university in the Middle East. Tomorrow’s Leaders scholarship recipients should be prepared to begin the program in the Fall 2019 term.

The primary objective of MEPI’s Tomorrow’s Leaders scholarship program is to build a cadre of university-age leaders who are civic-minded, intellectually able, and professionally skilled, who will become the community, business, and national leaders of the future. 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 447 TomorrowXCHARXs Leaders already studying or who have graduated from these universities.

Scholarship recipients may pursue an undergraduate degree in a selected field at one of the two host institutions.. In addition to their studies, recipients will be expected to maintain at least a 3.0 GPA, engage in community service activities and participate in internships. Limited English- language training will be provided for some participants. Students may also have an opportunity for a study abroad semester in the U.S.
