2017 Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) for High School Students: The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to develop and implement the 2017 Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) for High School Students. 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 skills development in leadership, civic education and responsibility, diversity awareness and tolerance, and civic 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 cultural and social exchange component of the 2008 U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement. Subject to the availability of funds, the Embassy expects to award one cooperative agreement for up to $1,300,000 to carry out IYLEP for High School Students. Authority: Overall grant-making authority for this program is contained in the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, Public Law 87-256, as amended, also known as the Fulbright-Hays Act. The purpose of the Act is “to enable the Government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries...; to strengthen the ties which unite us with other nations by demonstrating the educational and cultural interests, developments, and achievements of the people of the United States and other nations...and thus to assist in the development of friendly, sympathetic, and peaceful relations between the United States and other countries of the world.”
