AY2012-2013 Egyptian Scholars Attend Orientation Program
The Commission has conducted a pre-departure orientation for nine Egyptians scheduled to participate in the AY2012-2013 Fulbright Egyptian Scholar Program. The orientation included a presentation on the “American Education System and Culture” by Dr. Kenneth Suit, a film and humanities professor at Milligan College, and information on grant details by Ms. Dina Gaafar of the Commission’s Egyptian team. Two recent alumni shared their experiences with the new Fulbrighters. They are Dr. Mayy El-Hayawy (Stanford University 2010-2011) and Dr. Eman El-Meligy (Gettysburg College 2011-2012). The Fulbright Egyptian Scholar Program provides opportunities for Egyptian post-doctoral faculty members, professionals, and independent scholars to conduct research at American institutions. The Commission extends best wishes to its AY2012-2013 scholars.
