Program Description

This exchange program will bring 25-30 emerging women leaders from the entrepreneurship field including the business, academia, media, and private and nonprofit sectors throughout the Middle East and North Africa to the United States for approximately two weeks of leadership training, mentoring and networking. The program will include a Washington, D.C.-based program, a week-long training institute at an educational institution in Boston, MA, and a mentoring component in New York City. After the U.S.-based activities, ECA anticipates that a private sector partner will organize a Middle East-based summit for program participants and others. The cooperative agreement will not exceed $350,000 in total funding. This is currently envisioned as a pilot program. Pending successful implementation of the program, the establishment of a successful partnership with participating organizations and the availability of funds in subsequent fiscal years, the Bure au reserves the right to renew this award for two additional fiscal years before openly competing it again.
