2016 Cynthia Nelson Masters Fellowship for International Students


The American University, Cairo is pleased to announce the 2016 edition of the Cynthia Nelson Masters Fellowship to study Humanities and Social Sciences at the University.

The Cynthia Nelson Masters Fellowship is named after Professor Cynthia Nelson, who was a pioneer of the Cynthia Nelson Institute of Gender and Women Studies (IGWS) and former dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences joined AUC in 1963.

The Fellowships provide either full or partial tuition scholarships to successful candidates. In addition to this, the highly competitive Cynthia Nelson Fellowship will provide students with the opportunity of working with a faculty member on their research and other professional work.

The fellowship is awarded for two semesters. It is applicable to only courses relating to gender equality and women’s studies. The renewal of the fellowship is determined at the end of current semester. This is to determine eligibility for continuing the grant in the following semester.
