Nibras International School has partnered with the Rochester Institute of Technology of Dubai to provide its students with access to one of the region’s leading technological institutions (RIT Dubai).
The new collaboration will allow Nibras International School students from various backgrounds to study at RIT Dubai. The most deserving students can also apply for one of the many scholarships available at the school.
“Our exciting partnership with RIT Dubai provides our students with the opportunity to join a truly amazing post-secondary establishment,” said Dr. Jay Teston, Principal of Nibras International School.
He continued, “RIT Dubai is not only one of the leading technological institutions in the UAE; its connection to RIT in New York ensures that our students are at the forefront of opportunities to attend one of the most prominent Universities in the United States. We have numerous partnerships in place to support our students with their career pathways, but we are especially proud of this new relationship with RIT Dubai.”
RIT Dubai will offer eligible students academic scholarships ranging from 5% to 45%, based on their cumulative grade average. Academic scholarship recipients are also eligible for an additional 5% bursary.
Three Nibras International School students who are not eligible for academic scholarships will be chosen by the RIT Dubai scholarship committee to receive the Dean’s Scholarship, which provides a 30% scholarship to study in RIT Dubai’s Departments of Engineering, Computing, and Business. This scholarship is contingent on strong academic performance in prerequisite courses relevant to each department.
Every year, one outstanding student from the school will be recognized with the prestigious Tiger Journey Scholarship from RIT Dubai, which provides a 25% scholarship for all four years of study without the need for re-evaluation each year. Students will also benefit from the ability to transfer to RIT’s main campus in New York, furthering Nibras International School’s vision of assisting students in attending the world’s top universities and colleges.
Dr.Yousef Al Assaf, President, RIT Dubai, said, “We believe in empowering young talents and opening up opportunities for students who show commitment and a great level of analytical capabilities. Our partnership with Nibras International School will give top achievers access to create their bright futures at RIT Dubai.””
The collaboration will also encourage additional areas of collaboration between Nibras International School and RIT Dubai, such as bespoke workshops, events, and speaking engagements hosted by RIT Dubai for the Nibras International School community.
