We are now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Student Leaders Program until December 13, 2021!
The Student Leaders Program (SLP) is a rigorous leadership and civic engagement program for selected undergraduate and graduate students from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Students are placed in U.S. universities where they complete academic coursework, develop leadership and project management skills, and expand their understanding of civil society and participatory governance processes in the United States and MENA region. The cornerstone of the program is the development of Community Engagement Plans, where each student identifies an issue/opportunity that they would like to improve in their communities. During the program, students will have the opportunity to meet their American peers, engage in community service activities, and meet civil society organizations.
