Global UGRAD Program
Throughout the world, the United States supports programs that focus on people-to-people relations to foster mutual understanding and strengthen ties. For generations, Egyptians and Americans have benefited from a range of U.S.-sponsored academic and professional exchange programs. Many of the personal ties forged during these exchange programs endure for decades and alumni of these programs continue to contribute in positive ways to their countries and peaceful dialogue. Their exchanges and successes symbolize the broad and deep partnership between the people of Egypt and the United States.
Many American students and scholars have had deeply enriching intellectual experiences studying at Egyptian universities, and in addition to working partnerships have contributed to the world’s understanding and appreciation of Egyptian history and culture. Likewise, the United States has a long tradition of welcoming Egyptians at public and private educational institutions, where they contribute to the intellectual and cultural dynamism of campus life. These exchanges symbolize the broad and deep partnership between Egypt and the United States, which benefits both countries and bring the nations closer together.
