American Fulbrighters Visit the Fayoum
On November 17 American Fulbrighters and their families visited the Al Fayoum protectorate of Wadi El Rayan, located 100 kilometers southwest of Cairo. The program was sponsored by the Commission’s Culture and Education Program, and included site visits to Qasr El Sagha, the ancient city of Dimeh Al-Siba, and the Wadi El Rayan Lakes. “Thanks for arranging the Fulbright trip this weekend,” one grantee said. “It was an awesome experience … a real highlight for me!” The Commission’s Culture and Education Program helps its American grantees to see Egypt and to meet each other to build new friendships with other Fulbright scholars, students, and their families.
