Scholar-In-Residence Program


Program Description

The program sends scholars and professionals from Egypt and other countries to universities in the United States to internationalize the institutions’ campuses and curricula.  Scholars in Residence typically spend three to ten months teaching and consulting in area studies programs, in interdisciplinary programs that focus on global issues, or in courses where participation of a foreign scholar can provide a cross-cultural or international perspective.  Preference is given to institutions that infrequently host visiting scholars and that serve student populations underrepresented in international exchange programs.
