TLG(Tomorrow’s leaders’ graduate) program is a MEPI initiative aimed at offering students from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) a golden opportunity to pursue higher education and earn a master degree through a leading American University with U.S. accreditation in the MENA region. Tomorrow’s leader graduate program equips graduate students with adequate professional experience needed to advance knowledge and contribute to the achievement of socially relevant outcomes through research that furthers the professionalization of emerging leaders while supporting and increasing scholars’ knowledge in the various fields of study.
Students who have graduated work closely with leading faculty in their field on research agendas crafted in line with the MEPI-TLG goals. Starting as graduate research assistants while taking their graduate courses, students are being taught solid research skills that prepare them to conceptualize and conduct their own full-fledged research.
Grounded in common foundational principles such as gender and intersectionality, the program provides participants with opportunities to engage in related extra-curricular activities such as community service and leadership. These mentioned activities create a sense of belonging and connections to an elite group of humanist and social entrepreneurs, with common concerns and leading roles. The connections created or established are expected to live beyond the span of the program study years as the participants become alumni of both, the TLG program, and the University. Above all, students and graduates are treated as fellows of the program.
Note: Degrees in medicine or law are not supported under this program.
