Audit of USAID/Egypt’s American University Leaders for Education and Development Program Activities.
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: No
To help provide higher education in development-related fields to talented Egyptian postgraduates, USAID/Egypt has designed a program to recruit public school graduates who exhibit leadership potential and who pursue extracurricular activities. Since July 2004, USAID/Egypt has provided about 270 full 5-year scholarships to Egyptian students through its Leaders for Education and Development (LEAD) Scholarship Initiative. In each of the past 5 years, the mission has provided 54 full-tuition scholarships to students to attend the American University in Cairo. Other activities include (1) managing the recruitment, selection, and coordination of new LEAD scholars, (2) offering enrichment activities, including internships and semesters abroad for selected outstanding students, and (3) sponsoring housing at the American University in Cairo. USAID/Egypt awarded two cooperative agreements to the American University in Cairo valued at $33.6 million.
This audit will determine whether USAID’s LEAD initiative in Cairo has expanded the inclusion of girls and women in the program and increased graduation rates for students with undergraduate degrees in development-oriented programs since 2007. In addition, the audit will assess the program’s enforcement of full waiver tuition requirements for students who did not fulfill academic requirements.
