Career counseling: a narrative approach Core Fulbright Scholar Program | Awards Catalog | Application Form I anticipate that after my research in [host country], I will be in a strong position to begin writing a monograph that focuses on women’s education and their scholarly networks in medieval Syria, which is the ultimate goal of my research. Such a publication will be of interest not only to scholars of medieval Islam and women’s studies but also to those who are interested in understanding the historical contexts of Muslim educational systems. Further, I expect that this study can contribute to future work in the field of comparative religions as there are a number of intriguing parallels between medieval Muslim female scholars and their Christian counterparts in Western Europe. Finally, this research will enhance my teaching at Lafayette College. I have found that my passion for my scholarship is best communicated to my students through concrete examples from research that I have personally undertaken. Prof. The impact of a Fulbright award for my home institution would be significant.
