Excellent results in Cambridge International A Level examinations have earned Mohamed Sadiq Mohammed Farooq of Arab Unity School in the UAE and Sara Hussam Mahmoud Gamal El Dien El Shaikh of St Fatima Language School in Egypt, three year scholarships. The Cambridge International Fellowship Scholarships will be used to offset the cost of their education, including school supplies and course fees.
Both students attained high marks in their Cambridge International A Levels. William Bickerdike, CIE Regional Manager for Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan, said, "Congratulations to both of these students for attaining excellent results and each earning one of just four Cambridge scholarships this year. All the schools involved must be proud of their teachers" and students" achievements."
As Cambridge International Fellowship Centres, both schools nominated students for the annual Cambridge International Fellowship Scholarship. Each year, CIE awards at least three students around the world with a scholarship of £3,000 to fund their higher education.
Previous Fellowship Scholars have gone on to institutions such as University of Cambridge, University of Toronto, London School of Economics and Oxford University to read Management, Engineering, Economics and Mathematics with Physics.
Cambridge International Centres around the world are invited to apply for Fellowship Centre status once each year. Each application is considered by a board of Directors before Centres are awarded this status. Currently, only 37 of more than 5,900 Cambridge International Centres have received this status.
