INDEVCO hosts scholarship recipients from across the Middle East region.

Students from MEPI Tomorrow's Leaders Scholarship Program visited INDEVCO headquarters to learn about the workings of a multinational manufacturing group. The visit began with a brief introduction of Tomorrow’s Leaders by Dr. Walid Touma of Lebanese American University (LAU). The students from diverse academic specializations originate from across the Arab world.

Tomorrow’s Leaders Program is funded by the U.S. State Department Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) and coordinated by LAU Enterprise Office.

The program seeks to develop capable and highly-motivated high school graduates in the Middle East as rounded characters ready to take on the challenges facing their countries when they return. The scholarship provides a four-year, university-level scholarship and internship opportunities at select institutions of higher learning in the Middle East.
