Kuwait urges stu­dents to be ‘good am­bas­sadors’ abroad

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait’s Min­is­ter of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Dr Mohammad Al-Fares urged Kuwaitis who would be study­ing abroad to be “good am­bas­sadors” of their coun­try, and to rep­re­sent the hu­man­i­tar­ian side of Kuwait. Fares, also Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion, made the re­marks dur­ing an ori­en­ta­tion with Kuwaitis with schol­ar­ships for the year 2017-18.

Schol­ar­ship is the “be­gin­ning of the path of build­ing your per­sonal fu­ture and de­vel­op­ment of your coun­try which has given you a lot,” he said. Ed­u­ca­tion, he added, was the tool for the de­vel­op­ment and pros­per­ity of na­tions and their youth. Fatma Al-Se­nan, As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary for Schol­ar­ships and Cul­tural Re­la­tions at Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion, said the min­istry has an am­bi­tious strat­egy to de­velop ed­u­ca­tion. She said Kuwait sought sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment through pro­vid­ing top-qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion for the na­tion­als. Cul­tural at­taches of coun­tries in which schol­ar­ships were of­fered at­tended the ori­en­ta­tion to ex­plain to the stu­dents rules and reg­u­la­tions re­lated to their stud­ies, as well as so­cial con­di­tions in their coun­tries. — KUNA
