PARSIPPANY — Czar Alexei Sepe, a Lake Parsippany native and a rising junior at Boston College studying political science and history, was recently awarded the Omar A. Aggad Travel and Research Fellowship by the Boston College Islamic Civilizations and Societies department and the Office of International Programs, for his project proposal, “The Politics and Culture of Christianity in Lebanon.” He will be traveling to Beirut, Lebanon over the summer to complete a six-week intensive language acquisition and cultural immersion program at the Lebanese American University (LAU).

The Omar A. Aggad Fellowship seeks to “to inspire BC graduate and undergraduate students to expand their understandings of the Arab world, and of the relationships between Arab societies and the West.” Fellows in the past have gone to Doha, Qatar, Cairo, Egypt, Israel and Palestine, and Barcelona, Spain to study pressing political and social issues in the Arab world.
The Islamic Civilizations and Societies (ICS) department at Boston College is “an interdisciplinary program for undergraduates interested in the breadth and depth of the Islamic World,” that prepares students for “careers in diplomacy, journalism, international business, government, social service, think tanks and policymaking as well as graduate academic or other professional study.” If you want to learn more about the ICS department at Boston College by clicking here.
