The Wisconsin School of Business announces a scholarship opportunity for undergraduates to attend the Middle East Institute (www.mei.edu) annual conference, to be held on November 7-8, 2018, in Washington, D.C. The mission of the Middle East Institute is to provide nonpartisan, expert information and analysis on the Middle East. The MEI Annual Conference typically attracts an audience of over 600 attendees, including opinion leaders and policymakers, diplomats and executives, teachers and students, elected officials and the community at large.
Up to six UW-Madison undergraduate students will be chosen to attend the conference. For these students, airfare, lodging, conference registration (including the keynote luncheon), and local transit will be covered by the Donald C. Leidel International Business Scholarship Fund, administered through the Wisconsin School of Business.
