AlMabarrah AlKhalifia Foundation announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with British University of Bahrain to provide scholarships for students in Bahrain.
As part of the agreement, the university will be added to the Foundation’s partner universities, where they will provide scholarships to a number of majors offered to the eligible students. The scholarship will include benefits of the Rayaat program such as covering all university fees, including book fees, receiving monthly financial incentives based on educational achievement. This is in addition to the opportunity to participate in workshops and skills development courses, as well as training opportunities in both government and private sectors. The grantee student will also be able to issue a Rayaat card that provides many benefits such as community service opportunities and volunteer work, participation in monthly educational and recreational activities.
The British University of Bahrain opened in 2018, in partnership with University of Salford – Manchester, as an extension of its campus in Bahrain. The ‘Rayaat Scholarship’ program was launched in 2011, in line with the foundation’s vision to provide students with scholarship opportunities at accredited universities in the Kingdom.
