MEPI Tomorrow’s Leaders Programme

Sponsored by the Department of State’s U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), the Tomorrow’s Leaders Programme offers undergraduate and graduate scholarships for accomplished students from socioeconomically underserved backgrounds who represent the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s cultural, religious, and geographic diversity.

For more than 16 years, the Tomorrow’s Leaders Programme has partnered with the MENA region’s pre-eminent American-style universities across the MENA region to equip participants with knowledge and skills necessary for effective leadership. By attending world-class universities like the American University in Cairo, the American University of Beirut, and the Lebanese American University, which are rooted in the liberal arts tradition, Tomorrow’s Leaders develop strength in critical thinking and find creative solutions to the challenges facing their communities, the MENA region, and the world.

In addition to their academic work, Tomorrow’s Leaders have access to exciting internships, dedicated faculty mentors, and enrichment workshops that help them develop their leadership abilities. Undergraduate participants have the opportunity to study abroad in the United States for one semester. By engaging with host communities through volunteer projects and civic engagement activities, they deepen their understanding of American culture and its diverse societies. Upon returning to their home countries, participants join a network of over 1000 programme alumni serving as leaders across the MENA region.
