Werner Otto Fellowships


Ten students representing six different departments received Werner Otto Fellowships during the 32nd Board of Governors Meeting. These awards, supported in part by the German Friends of the University, are given annually to a specific class of students: Arab women graduate students. Their aim is to foster academic aspirations among a population that until relatively recently did not in the main strive for higher education goals. Two of the fellowship recipients are doctoral candidates in the Dept. of Arabic Language and Literature, which Israel’s Council for Higher Education accredited to award doctorates only a short time ago.
