Opportunities for Iraqis to Study in the United States

The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad has announced that it is now accepting applications for U.S. Government-sponsored exchange programs focused on developing leadership skills.

The programs provide Iraqi students and professionals with the opportunity to travel to the United States to exchange ideas and build linkages with their American colleagues.  These programs work to support the goals of the U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement and to build ties between the United States and Iraq.  Specifically, they are working together to promote cultural and educational exchanges to forge strong, long-lasting bonds of friendship and mutual respect.

The following programs focused on inspiring future leaders are now accepting applications:

There is no cost to apply to these programs. The U.S. Department of State will fully fund participants’ travel, educational program costs, health insurance, housing, and a modest living stipend.
