Three Win CASA Fellowships

Three students of Arabic—Nadirah Mansour and Maria Nelson, both seniors majoring in Near Eastern Studies, and Faez Syed, a graduate student in Religion—have been awarded fellowships for the Center for Arabic Studies Abroad (CASA) program. The fellowships, awarded based upon the results of a nation-wide qualifying examination, fund a year’s study of Arabic at the American University in Cairo.
