USAID Egypt IIE - LSP Scholarship Program

The Local Scholarship Program (LSP) is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) with the support of the American people. The program is part of the U.S.- Egypt Higher Education Initiative (HEI). The U.S.- Egypt Higher Education Initiative is an investment in Egypt’s future that provides educational opportunities for high-achieving Egyptians to learn skills that will better meet the needs of the 21st century economy. The program is managed by the Institute of International Education (IIE), in partnership with a consortium of Egyptian partner universities and organizations.   

Building on the success of the USAID funded LEAD program, AUC is one of the partner universities collaborating with the IIE. The LSP program at AUC will provide comprehensive undergraduate scholarships to talented and deserving Egyptian students with a high demonstrated financial need to obtain degrees from AUC in fields of study that are important to Egypt’s current and future development.

The program provides full tuition awards for up to five years for 10 students in Fall 2017.
