Qatar University welcomes return of international students

Networking with returning alumni, picking up on presentation materials and obtaining financial resource information, Qatar University students joined leaders and faculty Jan. 2 in Doha for the institution’s 6th Annual Scholarship and Sponsorship Students’ Gathering.
 
Sponsored by the Scholarships and Partnerships (S&P) Office and primarily orchestrated to provide students with opportunities to apply for scholarships and graduate-level sponsorships, the QU event featured President Dr. Hassan Al Derham and two PhD law graduates as presenters and also offered information about the S&P office.
 
QU honored a total of 17 graduates with awards acknowledging their academic achievements — consisting of five PhD recipients and 12 Master’s of Arts (MA) degree holders.
 
“We are here today to listen to your experiences while studying abroad and to give you an overview of the objectives of the Scholarships and Partnerships Office at Qatar University,” said Al Derham. “The [S&P] Office gives you the opportunity to pursue your graduate studies at top universities around the world.”
 
S&P Office Director Cesar Wazen added that 29 QU students were granted scholarships and sponsorships in 2016 to continue their studies in universities worldwide.
 
“After graduation, you will contribute with your expertise to adding value to Qatar University, your college, and your department,” said Al Derham. “We look forward to maintaining a real communication between you and the university.”
