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 Program. The Tomorrow’s Leaders Program is a MEPI initiative for capable and highly  motivated high school seniors in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) who are from underserved backgrounds. The program  will provide four-year university enrollment and internship opportunities at select institutions of higher learning in the MENA region. 

Eligible students include men and women who have the potential to become leaders, represent the region’s cultural, religious, and  geographic diversity, are from socio-economically deserving backgrounds, and are unable to afford four years of college enrollment at  an American university in the MENA region.  

The primary objective of MEPI’s Tomorrow’s Leaders program is to build a cadre of university-age leaders who are civic-minded,  intellectually able, and professionally skilled, who will become community, business, and national leaders in the future. The program  intends to nurture leadership skills and the spirit of civic engagement and volunteerism among outstanding students at the American  University of Beirut (AUB), the American University in Cairo (AUC), and the Lebanese American University (LAU). Selected  students will join the 559 Tomorrow’s Leaders who have participated in this program. 

Tomorrow’s Leaders may pursue an eligible undergraduate degree in a selected field at one of the three host institutions and should be  prepared to begin the program in the Fall 2021 term. Participants are expected to maintain at least a 3.0 GPA, engage in community  service activities, and participate in career-relevant internships. Students may also have an opportunity for a study abroad semester in  the U.S. Students are expected to have strong English language skills; limited English- language training will be provided for some  participants. 

Participation in the program includes: full tuition coverage (for a maximum period of four academic years) at one of the participating  universities, health insurance, housing, monthly living allowance, two yearly round trip tickets from and to your home country, civic  leadership and career-oriented workshops, internship opportunities, and faculty mentorship and guidance.
