The New Generation of Social Scientists in the Arab Region program is a fellowship program that aims to:
• Help develop a new generation of social scientists who are committed to critical scholarship and research, teaching and mentorship, and public engagement;
• Support excellent students in at the BA, MA and PhD levels by offering innovative coursework and opportunities for trainings, mentorship, internships and networking;
• Create an institutional network that will support students nationally and regionally and will facilitate knowledge transfer and sharing across the region.
The program does so by selecting a cohort of fellows who are passionate about the social sciences and who are studying at different levels at different partner universities in the Arab region. The NewGen fellows will be immersed into a 2-year journey of activities comprising research, training, mentorship, networking and exposure. Together, these activities seek to incubate a new generation of social scientists capable of, and committed to, conducting research for social change, developing and teaching critical approaches to social issues and building new institutions and infrastructures for knowledge production. All program activities will be implemented in partnership with the program’s main partner universities in the region.
