Master’s students to be supported in new agreement with Islamic Development Bank

Dr Hayat Sindi, Senior Advisor to the President of the Islamic Development Bank, visited Cambridge last month on the occasion of the renewal of the partnership with the Cambridge Trust.

Under this new agreement a programme of scholarships has been established to support 10 Master’s students annually to undertake their studies at the University of Cambridge. This scheme enhances the current programme which has provision to support 15 PhD students to study at Cambridge. The IsDB scholars currently in residence joined Trust staff and Dr Sindi to mark the renewal of the agreement.

The Cambridge Trust works with IsDB to offer the IsDB Cambridge PhD and Master’s Scholarship programmes.
