on November 03, 2009 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

On Oct. 29, the U.S. State Department's Office of the Middle East Partnership Initiative (NEA/PI) announced on that it expects to award a maximum of two discretionary cooperative agreements for projects that will encourage youth entrepreneurship in the Middle East and North Africa.

This funding opportunity is open to institutions of higher education, non-profits, for-profits, and small businesses. The award ceiling is $1,500,000.

The funding opportunity notice states: “We are asking applicants to develop projects to foster a culture of entrepreneurship in youth. Illustrative, but not necessarily comprehensive, aspects might include entrepreneurial skill-building, idea generation, business incubation, competition, access to capital, access to employment, and development of entrepreneurship networks (including possibly virtual networks) to connect entrepreneurs with each other as well as with a broader range of stake-holders.”

The funding opportunity number is NEAPI-09-CA-019-MENA-102909 (CFDA 19.500). The application closing date is Nov. 30.
