Dubai (UAE), June 03, 2022: Nibras
International School is providing its students with access to one of the
leading technological institutions in the region through a partnership with the
Rochester Institute of Technology of Dubai (RIT Dubai).
The new partnership will provide Nibras International School students
from varied backgrounds, with the opportunity to study at RIT Dubai. The most
deserving students also have the chance to avail the many scholarships they are
offering students from the school.
RIT Dubai will offer eligible students academic scholarships ranging
from 5% to 45%, depending on their cumulative grade average. Recipients of
academic scholarships can also benefit from an additional 5% bursary.
Three students from Nibras International School, who are not
eligible for academic scholarships, will be selected by RIT Dubai’s 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. Receipt of this scholarship is subject to strong academic
achievements in prerequisite courses relevant to each department.
Every year, one outstanding student from the school will also be
recognized with the RIT Dubai’s prestigious Tiger Journey Scholarship which
provides a 25% scholarship for all four years of study without the need for
re-evaluation each year. Students will also benefit from having the opportunity
to transfer to the main campus of RIT in New York, supporting Nibras
International School’s vision to support students in attending the world’s
leading Universities and Colleges.
“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.”
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
The partnership will also encourage further areas of cooperation
between Nibras International School and RIT Dubai, including bespoke workshops,
events, and speaking engagements hosted by RIT Dubai for the community at
Nibras International School.
