ICESCO Allocates 90 Scholarships for Islamic World Students
10 November 2021
The Committee of Scholarships at the Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) held its annual meeting, which was chaired by Dr. Abdelilah Benarafa, Deputy Director-General (DG). The Committee consists of Dr. Ahmed Said Bah, Advisor to the DG for Partnerships and International Cooperation, Supervisor of the General Secretariat of National Commissions and Conferences; Mr. Aziz El-Hajir, Program Director at the Sector of Education; Mr. Mohamed Chikhi, from the Federation of the Universities of the Islamic World (FUIW); Ms. Aziza Afkir, from the Secretariat of the Scholarships Committee; and Mr. Mehdi Sebbar, from the Secretariat of the Sector of Partnerships and International Cooperation.
The meeting reviewed the submitted scholarship applications for the academic year 2021-2022, which the Organization annually allocates for the benefit of students from Member States and Muslim communities. ICESCO received this year 125 applications from 18 countries, from which it selected 90 students to benefit from this year’s scholarships.
The scholarships are divided into internal scholarships granted to students pursuing their studies in their countries and external ones for students following their studies abroad. The scholarships are granted in fields relevant to ICESCO’s areas of competence (education, science and culture), which serve the Member States and Muslim communities’ development projects. The Organization takes into consideration the fair geographic distribution of these scholarships.
In a bid to promote girls education, ICESCO endeavors to provide larger numbers of girls with opportunities to benefit from these scholarships, enabling them to pursue their higher education in areas falling under ICESCO’s realm of competence, especially in the fields of science and technology, given their key roles in addressing Member States’ needs.
