AMIDEAST MEPI Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program 2019/2020
Deadline: Varies by Country
Applications are open for the AMIDEAST MEPI Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program 2019/2020. The Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program is 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 select institutions of higher learning in the Middle East to students who have the potential to become leaders. 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 Tomorrow’s Leaders already studying or who have graduated from these universities.
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.
- Applicants should be from Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, and Yemen.
- 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.
