A BEACON OF SUPPORT FOR AMERICAN RESEARCH SCHOLARS IN EGYPT Find us
Forty-five fellows and research associates have been hosted and supported by ARCE during the past five years. Regardless of their discipline and historical point of reference these scholars live in today’s Egypt - the modern Middle East. They return to their institutions and communities ready to describe the realities of a country and region in transition. Continued support for these scholars and the value they add to their academic and local communities across the United States is priceless. Doctoral candidates benefit from ARCE guidance on how to navigate Egypt’s complex institutional landscape; postdoctoral scholars and faculty cultivate professional relationships that will deepen over time and that may be useful for future collaboration.
ARCE is delighted to have provided funding and support to these scholars while conducting their dissertation research in Egypt.
