Fully Funded US-MEPI Student Leaders Program for Undergraduate & Graduate Students From the Middle East and North Africa

Fully Funded US-MEPI Student Leaders Program for Undergraduate & Graduate Students From the Middle East and North Africa


The US-MEPI Student Leaders Program offers outstanding undergraduates from across the MENA region an intensive leadership training course of approximately 5 weeks in the United States from June 26 – July 31, 2019. The program emphasizes lessons in participatory governance and the application of leadership skills.

The Student Leaders program is a rigorous leadership program for up to 60 undergraduate and graduate students from the Middle East and North Africa.

Students are divided among U.S. academic institutions where they develop leadership skills and expand their understanding of civil society and participatory governance and how both may be applied in their home communities.

Participants have the opportunity to meet their American peers, engage in local community service activities, and observe and take part in the governmental process on the local, state, and federal levels. The program includes academic coursework, as well as study tours to various regions of the United States.

Upon completion of the U.S.-based program, participants are mentored by the program implementer to leverage their experiences through sponsored alumni activities designed to effect positive social change in their home countries approximately 6 months after the U.S. portion of the program. A competitive follow-on accelerator workshop may be held in the region upon completion of the U.S.-based program.
