Two students from Jordan and Mexico will soon advance their education at the illustrious Instituto de Empresa (IE) University in Segovia, Spain, after joining the growing list of recipients of a scholarship program run by Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV) and Abdul Latif Jameel Energy, as part of Abdul Latif Jameel Energy’s commitment to contributing to the communities in which it operates.
The latest entrants to the Young Talented Leaders Scholarship program were chosen after judges were left hugely impressed by the quality of this year’s applicants.
Jordanian student Amina Adwan receive her scholarship in relation to FRV’s Mafraq II (65 MW dc) project, while the successful Mexican student to be named shortly will benefit due to the Potosi Solar Farm (342 MW dc) in the state of State of San Luis de Potosí, Mexico.
|During their four-year degree programs at IE University, both students will see all their training and education costs, including tuition fees, accommodation, academic materials, travel, and meals, covered by the scholarships.
Roberto De Diego Arozamena, Chief Executive Officer of Abdul Latif Jameel Energy, said: “The Young Talented Leaders Scholarship program delivers on one of our top priorities, which is our commitment to helping to develop the communities in which we operate.
We are giving young and talented individuals – including from the Middle East – the opportunity to complete their studies at a first-class university, helping them build their education and skills.”
