A participant in the Commission’s Fulbright Egypt Student Program in Islamic Studies has earned an M.A. degree with Honors from the Yale Divinity School. She is Ms. Mariam Shehata. A graduate of Al Azhar University, Ms. Mariam began her Fulbright studies at Yale in AY2010-2011, concentrating on post modernism and Islam. Since AY2009-2010 the program in Islamic studies has provided opportunities for graduates of the faculties of Islamic studies at Al Azhar University to pursue graduate degrees in the United States. Ms. Mariam and nearly a dozen other Egyptian Fulbrighters have participated in the program. The Commission extends its warm congratulations to Mariam.
