Application for 2016-2017 Akademos Scholarship were some of the most difficult to assess because of the large pool of very deserving students, but our limited resources to provide them with assistance.
We received a total of 103 applications - 58 girls and 45 boys. 20 applications were shortlisted on the basis of merit, socioeconomic circumstances, and previous academic performance. These students were interviewed over Skype for a combined time of more than 8 hours; with invaluable assistance from Muhammad Mehdi of Ummat Educational Cultural Organization, KB Science College and Ali Akbari.
Following dedicated work from the board members and invaluable support from all of you, we have finally selected the Akademos Scholarship winners for 2016-2017, among them 10 girls and 2 boys. They are:
