The East-West: The Art of Dialogue initiative, established by the Shafik Gabr Foundation, organizes an annual exchange program, the Gabr Fellowship, for young emerging leaders from the East and West to join forces to develop and implement projects addressing critical issues in their countries.

Established in 2012, in response to the increasing tensions building between the East and West, the Foundation sponsors and fosters exchanges between emerging leaders from both cultures in the fields of arts, science, law, media and entrepreneurship – both business and social.

Each year, the Gabr Fellowship consists of 20-24 Fellows. Program participants spend ten days in Egypt, followed by a further week in the U.S., building enduring connections through hands-on activities, rigorous discussions, web-based interaction and, most importantly, their own collaborative Action Projects.

The Gabr Fellows have acquired a greater understanding of both Egypt and the United States and the challenges faced by both communities. Having served as cultural as well as linguistic ambassadors to one another, they then return home to play the role of diplomat, introducing Egyptians and Americans to a people, a culture and a future never before explored in this way.

Together, they are creating the legacy of ‘The Gabr Fellowship’: an international cohort dedicated to pursuing cooperative, collective solutions to their regions’ most pressing issues.

The 2018 Fellowship will take place between August 31st and September 9th in Egypt and between September 30th and October 7th in the United States. Applicants should be from the United States, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, the United Kingdom, or France and be between the ages of 24 and 35 years old.
