Aramex supports mideast Arab scholars
Dubai, February 26, 2009
Aramex, the global logistics solutions provider, will partner with the Middle East Studies Association (Mesa) to provide grants for Middle East based Arab scholars.
Administered by Mesa, the grant will fund an Arab Middle East based scholar to attend Mesa's conference, the prominent international scholarly convention on the study of the region.
This year’s annual conference will be held in Boston, Massachusetts in November.
The annual conference is an opportunity for Arab scholars to present their work to a global stage where breakthroughs in various fields of research are debated and discussed.
Aramex has made a commitment to sponsor this grant for the next four years. In addition to the grant, Aramex will also be sponsoring the Mesa Student Paper Prize.
Mesa is a non-political organisation of scholars and other persons interested in the study of the Middle East and North Africa.-TradeArabia News Service
