Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program for Undergraduate Students: The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to develop and implement the 2015-2017 Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) for Undergraduate Students. The goal of IYLEP is to cultivate future generations of Iraqi leaders by providing Iraqi undergraduate students exposure to leadership skills, civic education and responsibility, diversity awareness and tolerance, and the values of civic engagement. Proposals should include a U.S.-based exchange component and demonstrate how program activities 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 Undergraduate Students.
