Program 2

Research Fellowships

Over the course of five decades, ARCE’s fellowship program has
benefited more than six hundred scholars, whose research interests span
the diversity of Egypt’s periods and cultures. The
goal of ARCE’s fellowship program is to promote a more profound
knowledge of Egypt and the Near East through study and research and to
aid in the training of American specialists in academic disciplines
that require familiarity with Egypt.

The annual competition
for ARCE pre-doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships attracts applicants
from throughout the United States.

Collectively, the publications
resulting from ARCE fellowships constitute a substantial library that
includes a sizable portion of all scholarly output on Egypt by
Americans since 1957.
