Four students will benefit from full scholarships yearly at the Hamdan Bin Mohammad e-University thanks to a generous gesture by Shaikha Shamsa Bint Suhail, wife of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, it was announced yesterday.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed setting up the Shaikha Shamsa Bin Suhail Chair of Business and Financial Studies in the e-School of Business and Quality Management, the first to be named after a woman in the Arab world.
The chair provides four bachelors and higher studies students of business and financial studies with full four-year scholarships yearly, as provided by the MoU signed between the Shaikha Shamsa Bint Suhail Award for Creative Women and the University yesterday at Dubai Police headquarters. The MoU was signed by Dr Mouza Gobash, Chairperson of the award's board of trustees, and Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai Police Chief and Chairman of the university's board, in the presence of Dr Mansour Al Awar, Chancellor of the university.
Dr Mouza said the idea behind the chair was enhancing the educational march at the higher studies level and expanding the horizons of remote education, which is highly supported by Shaikha Shamsa as it helps men and women who cannot attend a university to study and earn recognised degrees while keeping their jobs.
