TLS Program Overview and Benefits

There are no active sessions at the moment.

LAU has launched a new Tomorrow’s Leaders Gender Scholars Program (TLS), fully funded by the United States Department of State - Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). The program aims to fortify existing networks in gender studies curriculum and to foster a cross-disciplinary culture of gender mainstreaming in coursework among undergraduate students. Due to the current dire economic situation in Lebanon, TLS program targets currently enrolled, high academically achieving, Lebanese students on financial aid from all fields of study.

This program is led by the School of Arts and Sciences that tailor-made the Gender Series program to meet TLS’ objectives.
