Leadership Programs

MEPI aims to enable partnerships between citizens, government officials, educational institutions and local organizations using scholarships for universities in the region, as well as exchanges and training that build expertise and linkages among professionals across the region and with the United States.

MEPI exchange programs enhance cultural understanding, international collaboration, institution building, knowledge sharing, and economic development between U.S. and Middle East/North Africa-based students, entrepreneurs, lawmakers, and civil society leaders.
