    The Centre for Arab-West Understanding (CAWU), Sekem Development Foundation (SDF) and Heliopolis University (HU) are organizing an intercultural and international summer school to foster cultural understanding and international friendship, thus promoting peace and sustainable development.

    Lecturers will include a Member of the European Parliament, senior Dutch and Egyptian lecturers. Excursions will include visits to locations in Egypt where intercultural dialogue is practiced. The summer school will be completed with a certificate of participation.

    If you are an open-minded student or young person interested to engage in interreligious and international exchange, you can apply until June 10 to the CAWU or HU (link to the application form see below).  In the application, please state your motivation and why you think you are suited to participate.  A short CV can be helpful to demonstrate this.

    The Summer-School itself, and accommodation at the Heliopolis Student Hostel is sponsored by SGP.  However, we ask for a small contribution towards these costs.  Furthermore, you have to pay for travel to and from Cairo, cost for visa and insurance as well as entrance fees for museums and sites (like the Pyramids).  The contribution for the summer school is of LE 500,- for students enrolled in a Egyptian university (and residents of any transition state) and € 100 - for students enrolled in a university outside Egypt, and/or resident in Europe, North America, Asia or any other part of the world. If you can’t afford these fees you can explain this in the application and ask for a scholarship (see application form).
