Dalia Abbas '13, political science graduate, earned her Master's in Education (EdM) — Technology, Innovation, and Education — from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She received the Harvard Intellectual Contribution Award, which honors students "whose dedication to scholarship enhanced the academic life of the community and positively impacted their fellow students" at Harvard.

"When I found out I got selected for the Harvard Intellectual Contribution Award, I was mostly just really surprised and humbled. There are so many incredible individuals in my program, from those who have worked on Sesame Street to those who run their own companies in places like Pakistan, to those that have taken their educational ventures on shows like Shark Tank. I'm grateful for my experience as an undergraduate at The American University in Cairo in that I think it really helped me distinguish myself and my interests and use that experience to make an impact in the intellectual community here at Harvard."
