Gabr Fellowship

Key facts about the program:

The Fellowship is sponsored by the Shafik Gabr Foundation.

The Fellowship was launched in London, New York and Washington D.C. in November and December 2012.

The program selects 20 Fellows of young professionals from U.S., Egypt and UK to join forces aiming to develop and implement projects addressing critical issues in their countries.

The 2013 program took place in Egypt in June with visits to Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor – and in the US in October with visits to New York, Atlanta and Washington DC.

The 2014 program took place in May 2014 in Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Luxor, and Aswan, and the US portion of the exchange was held in June 2014 with visits to Washington, DC, Atlanta, New York and New Jersey.

The Fellows produce joint projects as part of their exchange to leverage their experience to their peers and communities.

Together, through their cooperation and their projects, they are creating the legacy of the Gabr Fellowship and developing an international cohort dedicated to pursuing cooperative, collective solutions to their regions' most pressing issues.
