Wonders of the Red Sea                  January 2014 Scuba Diving Courses for First-time and Certified Divers January 16 - 21 and 23 - 28, 2014 AUC Field Station, El Gouna, Hughada    Is learning to dive among your New Year's resolutions? Scuba diving opens a whole new world for you. It's both a physical and mental sport, and a form of meditation. Egypt's Red Sea offers one of a kind opportunity to see fascinating marine  life and coral reefs, some of which are not found anywhere else in the world.    The AUC Diving Club is organizing two diving trips in January at the AUC El Gouna campus, offering three diving courses:
1) Open Water Diver (for those with no diving experience) 
2) Advanced Open Water Diver (for holders of the Open Water license)
3) Rescue Diver (for holders of the Advanced Open Water license) 
The first trip is during Jan. 16 - 21 and the second is during Jan. 23 - 28. The two trips are identical.    For details or to sign up contact Ms. Nancy Shawky: 010.6662.7414  
 

 


 

 

 


 

The Eltoukhy Family Fellowship for Graduate Students in Engineering at Stanford University

Building Bridges between the West and the Middle East through Engineering Education 

 

The Atef and Fofa Eltoukhy Family Fellowship aspires to educate the best technical minds in the Middle East and promote the understanding and tolerance of cultural and religious differences among people through shared academic experiences. Dr. Atef Eltoukhy, a native of Egypt, received his PhD in engineering from the University of Illinois and he credits his graduate education for his success as a professor, research scientist and entrepreneur. His sons Helmy and Ahmed attended Stanford Engineering. The Eltoukhy Family hopes the fellowship will provide others with the educational opportunities that benefited them, and encourages the brightest students from the Middle East to apply to Stanford. Students from Egypt are the fellowship's highest priority, but support may also be extended to students from neighboring countries.

Download the Etoukhy Family Fellowship PDF for more information.

Academic year 2014-15 Application will be available in mid-March 2014Here.
