The U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) is inviting applications for its Tomorrow’s Leaders Graduate Scholarship Programme for the 2021/2022 academic session.
Tomorrow’s Leaders Graduate (TLG) program is a MEPI initiative aiming at offering students from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) a unique opportunity to pursue higher education and earn a master’s degree through leading American University with U.S. accreditation in the MENA region. TLG equips graduate students with professional experience needed to advance knowledge and contribute to the achievement of socially relevant outcomes through research that furthers the professionalization of emerging leaders while supporting and increasing scholars’ knowledge in gender issues in specific in the various fields of study.
Graduate Students work closely with leading faculty in their field on research agendas crafted in line with the MEPI-TLG goals. Starting as graduate research assistants while taking their graduate courses, students gain solid research skills that prepare them to conceptualize and conduct their own full-fledged research.
Grounded in common foundational principles such as gender and intersectionality , as well as community service and leadership, the program provides participants with opportunities to engage in related extra-curricular activities. These activities create a sense of belonging and connections to an elite group of humanist and social entrepreneurs, with common concerns and leading roles. Those connections are expected to live beyond the span of the program study years as the participants become alumni of both, the TLG program, and the University. Over the whole path, students and graduates are treated as fellows of the program.
Deadline: Application closes March 2, 2021.
