In an unforeseen, extremely generous move, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE, HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has established a grant to Emirati Masters students at the Paris-Sorbonne University in Abu Dhabi.
He's also allocated part of the grant for students planning to attend the prestigious University in the future.
You have to give it to the UAE they like to look after their residents. The country is expending a lot of time and resources to grow and develop the potential of its youth.
The decision came after a gathering at Al Bahr Palace between the Crown Prince and Chairman of the Education and Knowledge Department, Dr. Ali Rashid Al Nuaimi, President of Sorbonne University, Prof. Jean Chambaz, Vice- President of Paris-Sorbonne University in Abu Dhabi, Dr. Mugheer Al Kaili, the French Ambassador to the UAE, Ludovic Pouille, among other notable figures in the field of Education., reported Gulf News.
The UAE has been working hard to align its educational system with its 2020 vision of a knowledge-based economy. Several initiatives and resources have been allocated as of late, (including the new campus of Amity University) to ensure that Emirati youths' education will equip them with the know-how needed to match the futuristic goals of the country.
Fabulous news if you're planning on going back to school!
