Arab-American Frontiers Fellowship OVERVIEW




  Dalal Najib: 

The Arab-American Frontiers Symposium aims at establishing long-term bi- or multi-national research cooperation. To further this goal, a small number of Fellowships are provided to teams of participants who intend to cooperate after each symposium. The Fellowship funding can be used for short-term exchanges to conduct research at a host research institution for a period of up to a month, to develop new research ideas, curricula, etc.  

The next call for applications for Arab-American Frontiers Fellowships will occur after the December 5-7, 2015 Symposium at KAUST, Saudi Arabia. More information will be provided.

  • Demonstrated ability to achieve proposed goal
