QNRF awards 16 fellowships to graduate students

Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), a member of Qatar Foundation Research and Development (QF R&D), has awarded 16 fellowships to graduate students in 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, University of Sydney, and 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 programme 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.”
GSRA provides research support for up to four years, allowing faculty and researchers to identify outstanding graduate students, from inside and outside Qatar. The programme 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.
