Qatar Fund for Development, in partnership with Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) and the Geneva Graduate Institute (GGI), participated in the graduation of Qatar Scholarship Program (QS) students for the year 2022-2023.
Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) participated in the Geneva Graduate Institute (GGI), in partnership with Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), graduation ceremony to celebrate the graduating cohort of Qatar Scholarship Program. The cohort comprises 13 students, 7 males and 6 females, representing 9 countries.
The graduating students finished their studies in Development Policies and Practices with the program offered by GGI in partnership with HBKU. This program encourages graduate students to explore some of the most pressing regional and global development challenges and enhance their analysis and leadership skills.
Over the last decade, Qatar has undertaken significant reformation to build an educational system that puts quality education at its core. As Qatar’s official development agency, QFFD places education at the forefront of its priorities. It is one of the most critical sectors that serve a vital role in a community’s and a nation’s sustainable development, resilience, and peacebuilding. Therefore, Qatar Scholarships program has been established to provide access to quality education to learners and future leaders from least-developed countries.
Supporting such programs is an opportunity to highlight the Fund’s efforts at reducing disparity and inequity in education by creating lifelong learning opportunities at leading universities. It also highlights how QS offers its learners a chance to be a part of a rich cultural environment, network with experts, and gain skills through various programs and vocational training.
QFFD will continue to encourage these opportunities to promote human development and poverty alleviation through strengthening health and education systems and services, as well as give hope and promote peace and justice through sustainable and inclusive development.
