Total scholarship grant worth Dh10m for students pursuing their studies either in Dubai or Canada
GEMS students with good academic standing may get scholarships to study in Dubai or in Canada.
GEMS Education and Canadian University Dubai on Tuesday announced a partnership that will offer scholarships exclusively to GEMS students
The Dh10 million scholarship grant is for a series of scholarships in Canadian University Dubai starting this academic year 2018-2019.
The scholarship amount will vary depending on the course of study and the academic merit of GEMS students.
GEMS students who study at Canadian University Dubai will be able to study both at the Dubai and Canadian campuses.
Choosing to study in Canada will offer a unique career boost for students, as the country offers a path to citizenship once an international student earns a post-secondary degree from a Canadian university.
GEMS announced the launch of the UniConnect programme last year. The programme is set to include a series of strategic partnerships designed to provide scholarships and financial aid to GEMS students seeking admission at universities within the region and across the globe.
This first partnership with Canadian University Dubai also provides for dedicated career training for GEMS students.
Dr. Karim Chelli, President of Canadian University Dubai, said: “This partnership with GEMS Education illustrates our deep commitment to ensuring a transformational education experience for our students. We also recognise that strong relationships with partners such as GEMS Education enable us to build and shape future leaders.”
Dino Varkey, CEO of GEMS Education, said he looks forward to partnering with many more universities in the UAE and internationally – including the Ivy League – as part of GEMS Education’s commitment “to making quality education accessible for all our students throughout their schooling and beyond”.
