“As part of an ongoing development process conducted annually, our diverse scholarship offerings have been subject to detailed analysis and review to identify key areas of improvement and ensure the program’s outcomes align with the needs of the national economy,” said Dr. Bashaer Almatrooshi, Executive Director - Talent Enablement Sector at ADEK. “We are open to applications from creative thinkers, determined achievers, ambitious learners and relentless explorers; our goal is to empower them to fulfil their potential.
