Mostafa El Baradei Fellowship in International and Comparative Law (LLM)

The Mostafa El Baradei Fellowship in International and Comparative Law (LLM) provides tuition coverage for a graduate student admitted to the international and comparative law (LLM) program at The American University in Cairo who holds a degree in law from a public Egyptian university. The applicant must have an excellent academic record and demonstrate financial need.
This fellowship honors the memory of Mostafa El Baradei, a distinguished Egyptian lawyer who was elected president of the Egyptian Bar Association five times between 1958 and 1975. Throughout his long and honorable career, El Baradei consistently advocated a free and pluralist Egyptian society firmly grounded in the greater Arab nation. He worked tirelessly to defend the integrity and independence of the legal profession and firmly believed in the critical role of lawyers and the legal profession in shaping a just society.
