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.
