New U.S. Fulbrighters Convene in Washington
The Commission’s AY2012-2013 American Fulbrighters have participated in a pre-departure orientation hosted in Washington, DC, by the U.S. Department of State for Fulbright scholars and students en route to Egypt and other countries in the region. The orientation included sessions on cross-culture issues, grant administration, health and safety, and country-specific guidance. Egypt-specific guidance and information on grant details were presented by two members of the Commission’s U.S. team, Ms. Ranya Rashed and Ms. Amira Ibrahim. Two recent alumni shared their experiences with the new Fulbrighters. They are Dr. Peter Westort (Alexandria University 2011-2012) and Mr. Munir Sayegh (Helwan Univeristy 2011-2012). The Commission looks forward to welcoming the new Fulbrighters to Egypt.
