ANOTHER 2011 Fulbright WINNER!

Armaan Siddiqi Earns Fulbright Award on Road to Morocco

The Fellowship Office congratulates ARMAAN SIDDIQI, who was awarded a Fulbright Full Research Grant for 2011-12 in Morocco. Armann will graduate in May 2011 with a B.A. in Anthropology and International Studies. She will analyze Moroccan Muslim women's involvement in an Islamic social movement, specifically the Qadiri Boutchichi Sufi Order.  She plans to assess if and how it empowers female participants in modern society, and whether this has been a motivation for women to join the order. After returning from her Fulbright research, Armaan plans to attend graduate school with an emphasis on Middle Eastern Studies and to pursue an academic career focused on the themes involved in her proposed research study.

Congratulations, and great work Armaan!  Best wishes on a great project, and career, ahead.
