CASA II - 2009/2010 Program for Post-CASA Language Study
Center for Arabic Study Abroad (CASA)
2009-2010 Program for Post-CASA Language Study & Arabic-Based Research in Cairo, Egypt
The CASA II program aims to further opportunities for CASA fellows, who have completed the CASA Full-Year program within the past five years, to continue to enhance their language skills and advance their Arabic-based research in Egypt.
The CASA II program offers the opportunity to study for one or two semesters (Fall or Spring or both) at the American University in Cairo. The program is meant to be flexible so as to cater to the individual linguistic and research needs of each CASA II fellow. Individual academic programs for each CASA fellow will be designed in close consultation between the fellow and the CASA Executive Director in Cairo.
Each CASA II fellow is expected to enroll in three tutorials per semester. These tutorials can be in any of the language skills or in the fellow's own field of specialization. In addition, CASA II fellows are welcome to enroll in any of the regular CASA classes that are offered during the fall and spring semesters as part of their CASA II program. CASA II fellows are also expected to participate in and contribute to the full range of activities of the CASA program.
To qualify for a CASA II fellowship, the successful applicant must have completed the CASA Full-Year program within the past five years and must be enrolled in a graduate program in Arabic/Middle Eastern Studies. Former CASA fellows who graduated more than five years ago may apply for a CASA II fellowship but they must take the CASA Entrance Exam to assess their current level of proficiency in Arabic.
Each applicant must complete the CASA II application form and provide all supporting documents.

Application deadline for 2009-2010 programs is January 9, 2009
