Jordan varsity agrees new scholarships
Amman, July 14, 2010
The Association of Queen Rania Al Abdullah Award for Excellence in Education and the University of Jordan agreed to provide new scholarships during a recent meeting.
The meeting aimed at developing the terms of an earlier MoU pertaining to academic scholarships awarded by the University of Jordan to the winners of the Queen Rania Al Abdullah Award for Distinguished Teacher and Distinguished Principal, reflecting the university’s response to the overall growth of the association.
Both parties agreed on the provision of two new Bachelor’s Bridge Program scholarships to be awarded to distinguished teachers holding an Intermediate Diploma, in addition to one Master’s degree scholarship to be awarded once every two years to the first place winner of the Queen Rania Al Abdullah Award for Distinguished Principal.
These scholarships will be added to the scholarships that were already agreed upon in the previous MoU that was signed in October 2008, and which dedicated four Master’s degree scholarships to winners of the Queen Rania Al Abdullah Award for Distinguished Teacher, enlisted distinguished teachers in the training of student teachers, and offered an English language course held by the university for the winning teachers.
“We are grateful for the University of Jordan’s ongoing support to our efforts towards motivating and recognising distinguished members of the educational field, which we aim to achieve by providing winners with professional development opportunities including the scholarships that are extended from the University of Jordan, our highly esteemed academic partner,” said Lubna Touqan, executive director of the association.-TradeArabia News Service
