Commission Reaches Out to Benha
Ms. Deena Omar of the Commission’s Egyptian team members called on Benha University recently. While at the University Ms. Deena presented a seminar on Fulbright student opportunities to more than 75 potential Fulbrighters. Of particular interest, she reported, was the Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA), which strengthens foreign language instruction of Arabic in American institutions while providing Egyptian teachers with opportunities to refine their skills, increase their English language proficiency, and expand their knowledge of American society. The seminar was preceded by a call on the University’s President, Dr. Ali Shams El Din. Through visits like this, the Commission is able to enrich its relations with Egypt’s academic and professional communities.
