Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program for High School Students: The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to develop and implement the 2013-2015 Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) for High School Students. The goal of IYLEP is to develop future generations of Iraqi leaders by inculcating in Iraqi high school students leadership skills, civic rights and responsibility, respect for diversity, and the values of civic engagement. Proposals should include a U.S.-based exchange component and demonstrate how they promote mutual understanding between American and Iraqi youth. IYLEP advances the goals of the 2008 Strategic Framework Agreement between the United States and the Republic of Iraq. Subject to the availability of funds, the Embassy expects to award one cooperative agreement for up to $1,500,000 to carry out IYLEP for High School Students.
