Filipino families planning to send their kids back home to finish their collegiate studies now have the option to avail of a scholarship grant for their kids in the UAE as a Sharjah-based university announced Dh7 million worth of scholarships to be granted to deserving students.

Skyline University College, one of the educational institutions based in the University City of Sharjah, said that an MoU had been drafted between their university and the Philippine Consulate for Dubai and Northern Emirates.

Dr. Mohammad In’airat, professor and dean at the Skyline University College, shared the good news with The Filipino Times during the sidelines of several MoU signings between Ramon Magsaysay Memorial College (RMCC) from the General Santos City in the Philippines together with several educational and corporate institutions in the UAE.

The MoUs signed between RMCC and the UAE-based institutions have an end goal to help Filipino students and faculty hailing from the Philippines to find ways to integrate and learn from the UAE’s world-class learning institutions and help them excel in today’s globally competitive work force.

“We have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Consulate of the Philippines in Dubai where we are offering scholarships for students. We are offering scholarships amounting to 7 million UAE dirhams. We are inviting our Filipino students to join Skyline University where they will get the benefits of this scholarship,” said In’airat.

The Skyline University College dean adds that the number of students who can be part of the Dh 7 million grant would depend based on the category of their scholarship. “This scholarship, we are just budgeting only for Filipinos. This (number of students who can avail the scholarship) depends because also there will be different categories – there is a scholarship of 50% and 25%, based on the merits of the students,” explains In’airat.

Parents and students who wish to check the available scholarships may proceed to their website where they will be assisted with the requirements.
