The American University in Cairo and the College of Charleston have recently partnered on a new academic cooperation and student exchange program for both undergraduate and graduate students for a period of five years.
Students from AUC and CofC will receive a scholarship to spend a semester or year abroad at the other institution, providing students with a unique international experience and strengthening East-West cultural ties.
AUC Trustee Jonathan Wolf (YAB ’75), founder and president of Wendover Housing Partners, LLC who was a study-abroad student at AUC, and his wife Nancy were instrumental in making this program a reality.
