Re: QUERY: Advice on Fellowships for PhD Students studying MENA Region

Hi Tiffany,

I agree with the earlier suggestions about Fulbright and SSRC. I also recommend you look at the Council of American Overseas research centers (CAORC). This group of institutions includes a couple of Middle East countries including Jordan, Morocco, Israel, Egypt, etc. Each individual location awards research grants and there is also a multi-country grant administered by CAORC as a whole. Good luck!
