Taher Al-Awadi, Director-General of the Beit Al Khair Society, lauded the initiative and expressed his thanks and appreciation to Dr. Karim Seghir, Chancellor of Ajman University, affirming that the immediate response reflects the university’s commitment and keenness to continue to support different charitable initiatives.
Ajman University offers various scholarships and discounts for students across the United Arab Emirates, to ensure students have more chances at getting and completing their higher education. These discounts and scholarships can be availed by high-school students, existing students and graduates wishing to pursue their post-graduate studies.
