The goal of the Fulbright Program in Egypt is to ensure scholars have a deeply enriching and productive experience, academically and culturally, and to promote mutual understanding between Egypt and the United States.
Egypt is a country with a rich history, a beautiful and diverse topography, and a robust and nuanced cultural context. Egypt is known for its bustling capitol, its rapidly growing population, and its unique role in the region. As a destination it offers a chance for Americans to learn about civilization’s origins and experience the thrill of navigating a complex locale. American Fulbright grantees are also able to impact higher education by teaching and researching at private and public universities, creating opportunities for young students, building networks with faculty, and presenting new methods and resources to host universities.
The higher education system in Egypt is currently responding to an active, engaged, large student body as it considers how to meet economic, technological, and healthcare challenges. The Binational Fulbright Commission in Egypt aims to assist by prioritizing a handful of teaching and research awards in Science and Technology as well as Business Administration. The Fulbright Commission also wishes to expand scholarly exchange in American Studies, International Affairs, Political Science, and the Performing Arts. The Fulbright Commission also welcomes awards in other disciplines and we encourage all interested candidates to fully review the awards for opportunities specific to their fields.
Please visit the Binational Fulbright Commission in Egypt's website for general information or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries about specific awards. It should be noted that clearance from the government of Egypt is required for all Fulbright U.S. Scholar grants and must be obtained in order for award issuance. The Fulbright Commission will facilitate this process on the scholar’s behalf. Final awards for 2020-2021 are contingent upon medical clearance, clearance by the Government of Egypt, the availability of funds, and the security situation in country.
Research opportunities are also available via the Middle East and North Africa Regional Research Program.
