As you go through our graduate program you will need to plan ahead, especially with regard to applying for fellowships for predissertation and doctoral dissertation research in the Middle East. Keep in mind that most fellowships have application deadlines about a year in advance of your expected date of departure; that is, you will need to apply in September-November of one year for fellowships that begin in September of the following year. That means that you must begin developing your doctoral dissertation research plans quite early in your graduate career.
