Doha: Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) signed two agreements under the umbrella of Qatar Scholarship with Doha Institute for Graduate Studies and Lusail University.
On this occasion, the Deputy Director General of Projects at Qatar Fund for Development Misfer Al-Shahwani, said: “These agreements focus on investing in the existing educational infrastructure in the State of Qatar to achieve the objectives of the State of Qatar in regard to international development. As QFFD is keen in the integration and cooperation with all national institutions, serving the common goals of us and these institutions.”
Qatar Fund for Development signed an agreement with Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, as this partnership comes as part of Qatar Scholarship. This agreement aims to attract international students from developing countries to complete their education in one of the postgraduate programs offered by the institute. It is worth noting that this partnership is not the first of its kind. In 2018, QFFD signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Institute to enhance the academic cooperation and benefit from common capabilities.
In her statement, the Executive Director of Administration and Finance Division at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (DI), Mariam bint Ali bin Nasser Al Misnad, praised the support represented by QFFD in covering the tuition fees for many international students from developing countries and non-residents of Qatar for a period of five years, to enable them to enroll in the master’s programmes, offered by the DI.
Qatar Fund for Development also signed an agreement with Lusail University, where this partnership comes as part of the Qatar Scholarships. This agreement aims to cover the tuition costs of a number of international students from developing countries who are not residing in the State of Qatar to enroll in the undergraduate program of Lusail University. This is the first agreement between QFFD and Lusail University.
The Vice President for Student Affairs at the university Fatima Al Musleh, indicated that the programme seeks to provide grants to cover the study costs of a number of international students from developing countries who are not residing in the State of Qatar, to enroll in one of the undergraduate programs offered by Lusail University.
Through this agreement, Lusail University aims to achieve its vision and strategic objectives by creating opportunities for cultural diversity and multinationalism within the university, and the consequent exchange of experiences and enriching knowledges among students.
