Commission’s Outreach Visits
This is a busy time for us at the Commission as the program teams are enthusiastically recruiting for our HEI, Islamic and Student Programs. Our goal is to maximize geographic, demographic and gender diversity. We have visited Universities in Helwan, Mansoura, Ismailia and Tanta. In the next few weeks, we have scheduled visits at Alexandria, Damanhour, Menoufia, Minia and Ain Shams Universities. We continue to utilize the expertise of our binational board and our alumni to reach out to niche applicants. BFCE leadership has met with the American Chamber of Commerce Industry and Trade Committee, Deputy Minister of Higher Education for Research, Head of Culture and Missions Division, Deputy Minister of Education for Technical and Vocational Training and the Governor of Giza to reach applicants beyond academia. On January 28, we met with the National Committee of Deans of Nursing schools under the auspices of the Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities.
On Feb 23rd, we launched a series of information and proposal writing training sessions for candidates from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Applied Arts and Music Education at the Former Royal Art College in Zamalek and on March 2nd, the team held an information session at the National Center for Radiation Research and Technology.
