The event drew 170 attendees, including students and their families and local partner Universities.

During the event, ten graduating expatriate students received their graduation certificates, and 32 high achievers were celebrated for their outstanding academic performance. EAA and its partners welcomed a new cohort of 28 scholarship recipients for the 2022-2023 academic year.

“EAA continues to work relentlessly to make a world where all youth, particularly the most underserved, have access to quality higher education that will support them in building a prosperous future. We thank Awqaf for their support in making this possible and look forward to the next phase where we aim to provide even more students in Qatar with the opportunity to access quality higher education”, said Talal Al Hothal, Programme Director at EAA.
