Middle East Partnership Initiative
The U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative has established a regional network that connects alumni of MEPI-funded projects. Currently, there are over 11,000 MEPI alumni, and this number is growing daily. The MEPI Alumni Network connects local MEPI Alumni Chapters that together provide coverage for nearly the entire region. MEPI announces an open competition for applications to continue MEPI Alumni Network awards in Lebanon and Bahrain that have been in progress since September 2011. Applicants must demonstrate an on-the-ground presence, or an ability to establish a presence through local partners. Applicants applying to conduct projects in both countries must submit a separate proposal for each country.
The projects to establish MEPI Alumni Network Local Chapters in Lebanon and Bahrain began in September 2011 as three-year initiatives funded by MEPI through grants to two local organizations. MEPI is seeking new applicants to complete these projects. For the Lebanon Chapter, MEPI expects successful applicants to work with and build the capacity of MEPI alumni, a majority of whom are currently members of the MEPI-Lebanon Alumni Association. For the Bahrain Chapter, MEPI expects successful applicants to support and build the capacity of the MEPI Alumni Steering Committee, an informal group recognized by MEPI as representing alumni in Bahrain. MEPI expects successful applicants to partner with these pre-existing formal and informal alumni groups.
