CGE is excited to announce new and/or enhanced partnerships with a few notable institutions and programs.
Our relationship with the University of Namibia is not entirely new, but we are working closely with counterparts there to deepen it. Stay tuned for more!
We have also signed an agreement that will allow us to coordinate the exchange of students between Augsburg and the American University of Beirut. Via this agreement, we are also able to host recipients of the The Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship for a term at Augsburg during their four-year studies at the American University of Beirut. Scholarships cover travel, academic fees for four years of university at AUB, a study abroad experience in the U.S. at Augsburg, accident and sickness insurance, housing, and a monthly allowance. This program is a joint venture between AMIDEAST and the U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). From AMIDEAST’s website:
The Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program provides scholarships to high school students in the Middle East and North Africa who are economically disadvantaged, but who have the drive and energy to be leaders. Selected participants will attend a U.S.-accredited university in the region. The American University in Cairo (AUC), Lebanese American University (LAU), and the American University of Beirut (AUB) are the current host institutions. Scholarship recipients receive an undergraduate degree and specialized civics-based training to include a semester abroad in the U.S., as well as internship opportunities with local public, civil society, or private-sector organizations. The primary objective is to build a cadre of university-age leaders who are civic-minded, intellectually able, and professionally skilled, and who will become the community, business, and national leaders of the future.
