Jamal Daniel Fund for the Study of the Levant at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University

From 2011-2014, The Levant Foundation and Georgetown University established the Jamal Daniel Fund for the Study of the Levant at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service.  This program supported students and scholars in their studies of the Levant Region – its culture, history, society, religion and current political context – as well as provide a platform for policymakers to discuss current and future issues as they pertain to the Levant Region.

The Jamal Daniel fund for the Study of the Levant provided support to the academic programs of the School of Foreign Service and Georgetown University from 2011-2014 by establishing: scholarships to support three graduate students who are committed to the study of the Levant, one or more postdoctoral fellows whose academic interests focus on the countries of the Levant, and a visiting professor in the first year who taught courses related to the issues and countries of the Levant and in subsequent years, postdoctoral fellows were recruited to the position.  

The pioneering Jesuits who founded Georgetown in 1789 foresaw an institution that would become a leader in education for the new nation. The university has fulfilled that aspiration and has expanded its influence to the world stage—most significantly with the creation in 1919 of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS), the first school of its kind in the United States.  The work of the School of Foreign Service—with its multidisciplinary reach across campus and its outreach to the world—has educated leaders in the fields of diplomacy and international affairs over nine decades.  The school is now widely regarded as the nation’s premier institution for international studies.
