Fulbright Egyptian Students Attend Orientation Program

 In Uncategorized

On June 19-20 the Binational Fulbright Commission in Egypt conducted a pre-departure orientation for Egyptian graduate students selected for participation in the 2006-2007 Egyptian Student Program. The orientation included presentations on “Understanding Americans: the Society, Values, and Institutions of the U.S.” and “U.S. Campus Life,” as well as information on U.S. visas and grant details. Fulbright alumni – including Vanessa Allen-Brown, Ahmed Demery, Jennifer Derr, Sherif Morad, and Rawya Rageh – shared their experiences with the new Fulbrighters. Others who assisted in the orientation were Vice-Consul Alistair Baskey from the U.S. Embassy and Stephanie Lisella D’Souza of AMIDEAST.

U.S. Ambassador Francis J. Ricciardone welcomed the students to the orientation and shared his experiences as a Fulbrighter. The Egyptian Student Program provides opportunities for recent university graduates, masters and doctoral degree candidates, and young professionals and artists to study in the United States
