Tomorrow's Leaders II Scholarship Program and Recruitment

The Office of the Middle East Partnership Initiative (NEA/PI) announces an open competition for proposals to enhance and expand educational opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa.

Education is a priority for the Administration, and President Obama has called for an increased emphasis

on building partnerships through expanding exchanges and increasing scholarship opportunities for students from this region.

With this announcement, NEA/PI seeks to expand its Tomorrow’s Leader Scholarship program, an innovative educational opportunity that offers degree-granting, university-level scholarship and internship opportunities at select institutions of learning in the Middle East and North Africa.

The current Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship program began in 2007 and is hosted by the American University in Cairo, Lebanese American University, and the American University of Beirut.

The applicant to this program announcement should be prepared to host the first cohort of scholarship recipients funded under this RFA beginning in the 2011/2012 academic year.

Priority areas under this RFA follow below.

Detailed guidance is attached.

Interested applicants are encouraged to read this entire RFA as well as the full guidance before submitting an application.
