“As the pri­vate sec­tor is an es­sen­tial part­ner of stu­dent ed­u­ca­tion, I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank Xerox Kuwait for con­tribut­ing to our Schol­ar­ship and Fi­nan­cial Aid Pro­gram. Darin and Omar are dis­tin­guished by their ex­cel­lent scholas­tic records and hard work and wor­thy of win­ing the Xerox Aca­demic Schol­ar­ship,” ex­pressed Pro­fes­sor Hamzeh.

While pre­sent­ing the stu­dents with the schol­ar­ships, Mat­tar ex­plained why Xerox Schol­ar­ship Award pro­gram is an im­por­tant ini­tia­tive. “Ed­u­ca­tion is an in­vest­ment that never fails. Xerox is proud to be part of a pro­gram that helps the stu­dents of to­day be­come the lead­ers of tomorrow,” he said.
