Visiting Scholars

The MEI has a long tradition of hosting visiting academics, through Fulbright, European grants, and other sources. It also has its own earmarked, but now undercapitalized endowment funding to host each year the Arcapita Visiting Professor in Arab Studies. In addition to the various types of pre-doctoral, post-doctoral and faculty visitors, the MEI together with the MESAAS Department in recent years won a prestigious grant for visiting scholars from the Carnegie Foundation. This provided for a total of four Arab social scientists to join us as Carnegie Centennial Fellows.
