QATAR NATIONAL RESEARCH FUND AWARDS 16 FELLOWSHIPS TO GRADUATE STUDENTS

Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), a member of Qatar Foundation Research and Development (QF R&D), has announced the winners of the fourth cycle of its Graduate Sponsorship Research Award (GSRA).

Out of 152 applications 16 winning proposals were awarded to graduate students and long-term residents in Qatar to pursue masters and doctorates at Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Texas A&M University at Qatar, Qatar University, the University of Sydney, and the University of Michigan. All fall under the pillars of the Qatar National Research Strategy: Energy and Environment, Biomedical and Health, ICT and Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.

Through investments in cutting-edge research projects, QNRF is working to enhance a science and research culture that supports Qatar’s innovation and technology capacity, helping the nation develop as a hub of research excellence. The GSRA program aims to build human capital in Qatar and promote postgraduate education in Qatar and abroad by providing fellowship support to outstanding scholars pursuing graduate degrees at approved institutions.  

Dr. Aisha Al Obaidly, Director of Capacity Building, QNRF, said

“I am proud to see that six out of the 16 awardees are Qataris - a significant increase in this cycle. Through the competitive scholarships offered by QRLP-GSRA, outstanding graduate students will be supported as they undertake their research-based studies towards masters and doctoral degrees within and beyond Qatar. At QNRF, we remain focused on Qatar’s priorities by delivering output aligned with the Qatar National Research Strategy and in support of the Qatar National Vision 2030.”

GSRA provides research support for up to four years, allowing faculty and researchers to identify outstanding graduate students, from inside and outside Qatar. The program supports the continuity of research-based doctoral education while simultaneously building awareness of local research opportunities.

While the primary benefit of  GSRA is to assist in building human capital, it also aims to boost Qatar’s reputation as a research hub by offering graduates world-class education and lifelong learning opportunities.

QF launches funding initiative to tackle emergencies like COVID-19

RESEARCH projects designed to help children with autism learn from home, enforce quarantine measures, and safeguard mental health of healthcare workers, will be supported through a new, streamlined funding call launched by Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), to help Qatar combat COVID-19.
With the needs of Qatar and the health and safety of its people as its priority, the Qatar Foundation (QF) member – which is the region’s leading research funding agency – developed the Rapid Response Call (RRC) from scratch in record time and accelerated the evaluation and funding phases to ensure that the proposed outcomes of awarded projects are met as soon as possible.
