Description: The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to develop and implement a 2020 Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) in Arabic for High School Students. The goal of this program is to reach greater numbers of talented but underprivileged or marginalized Iraqi youth who meet all of the IYLEP eligibility requirements except the English language component. Participants would be high achieving future young Iraqi leaders whose socio-economic circumstances do not afford opportunities for quality English language learning. The goal of IYLEP is to foster the next generation of Iraqi leaders by exposing Iraqi high school students to U.S. society and culture and providing them with skills development in leadership, civic education and responsibility, diversity awareness and tolerance, and civil engagement. Proposals should include a U.S.-based exchange component and explain how program activities will promote mutual understanding between American and Iraqi youth. IYLEP advances the goals of the 2008 U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement to forge strong and lasting bonds of friendship and mutual understanding through exchange and other programs. Subject to the availability of funds, the Embassy expects to award one grant for up to $1,000,000 to carry out IYLEP in Arabic for High School Students.
