Civic Education: The Office of the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) announces an open competition for applications that promote quality civic education, so that children and youth (defined as those who are between the ages of 15 and 30) across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) have a strong foundation on which to become active and engaged participants in social, political, and economic life. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has stated, "When young people have a chance to get involved, they gain a sense of purpose. They bring creativity and contribute new energy, and they become engaged citizens for whom service can be a life-long practice." One of MEPI's core objectives is to inspire youth to become actively engaged citizens, community leaders, and entrepreneurs so that they may contribute to more prosperous and participatory societies. To this end, the Middle East Partnership Initiative seeks proposals that contribute to the following key objectives: 1) Fostering pluralistic societies where civic culture exists that supports democratic values and the active participation of all individuals in social and political life; and 2) Building prosperous societies where education, specialized skill training, and an environment conducive to business development inspire innovation.Applicants may submit more than one proposal; however, each proposal should address only one of the following priority areas: A)Student Leaders Program; B) Arabic Language Literacy in Bahrain; and C)Civic EducationMore information about the priority areas can be found in the full announcement.Applicants must submit a separate application for each priority area under which they apply and must clearly state which priority area each application addresses.
