Emerging Markets Development Advisers Program

The Emerging Markets Development Advisers Program (EMDAP), formerly known as the "Free Market Development Advisers Program (FMDAP)" was a fellowship and cooperative activity between the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and IIE between 1992 through 2018. In that time, 250 Advisers participated in the program, providing assistance to over 200+ businesses and organizations in 50 USAID-assisted countries. EMDAP advisers—all students and recent graduates of U.S. Masters programs—represented 91 graduate schools.
