Qatar Fund for Development signed an agreement with Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, as this partnership comes as part of the 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 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 programs, 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 program 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 knowledge among students.
