Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program

The U.S. Department of State’s U.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 select institutions of higher learning in the Middle East to students who have the potential to become leaders.

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 2018 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 (AUB) and the Lebanese American University (LAU).  Selected students will join the 388 Tomorrow’s Leaders who have or are currently 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 participate in internships. Limited English-language training will be provided for some participants. Students who maintain a 3.0 GPA may have an opportunity for a study abroad semester in the U.S.

Participation in the program includes: travel, academic fees for up to four years of university at AUB or LAU, accident and sickness insurance, housing, and a monthly allowance during the school year.
