Shah is one of 1,200 inmates studying in Central Prison Karachi, but his success is unparalleled, said Saeed Soomro, deputy superintendent of the prison.
Sheikh Sultan instructed the people concerned to give back the scholarships withdrawn from students, whose average was less than 2, numbering 2,233 male and female students in all majors at UoS and AUS.
Sheikh Sultan published photos of his meeting with the administrative body of Khorfakkan University, and he also met with a delegation from the University of Exeter.
Sheikh Sultan approved the applications of 82 students to the Sharjah Maritime Academy (SMA) in Khorfakkan, 62 of whom received a scholarship, and the rest received a 30 per cent discount on fees.
Sheikh Sultan’s immediate response followed a call from the student to the Direct Line programme broadcast live on Sharjah Radio and TV, in which she said that she had obtained admission from one of the most reputable global universities in Japan to study for a master’s degree in it.
This was announced through the "Direct Line" programme on Sharjah Broadcasting Authority, saying that the Ruler of Sharjah, has approved 31 scholarships for Emirati students, in addition to 2 scholarships for two students of residents working in Sharjah govt bodies.
Khawla Abdul Rahman Bin Hadda confirmed that the scholarship programmes for outstanding Emirati male and female students come within the framework of the directives of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, to support outstanding students, especially national service graduates.
Professor Silvia Serrano stated, "Education is a significant asset for every member of the society. Our university is pleasured to take a remarkable part in pursuing academic excellence by providing scholarships to outstanding students in UAE and worldwide.”
To benefit from this initiative, eligible applicants can submit their scholarship request along with supporting documents and the acceptance letter from their chosen University or College to Education@FrontlineHeroes.ae.
His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Rashid Al Mu'alla’s directive aims to support outstanding students and encourage them to continue their effort and motivation to receive their higher education at Umm Al Qaiwain University.
