Nelson Mandela once said "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". We at LIGS University truly believe that, but we also realize that not everyone has the chance to get the education he or she wants. Due to financial constraints, many students from the developing countries do not have equal opportunities.
That is why we decided to offer a fully-funded MBA scholarship to one lucky student from a developing country! We were pleasantly surprised by the number of high-quality applications that we received and inspiring stories that the applicants shared with us. We are very grateful for each and every one of them!
Nevertheless, we had to select one. We are very proud to announce, that the new MBA scholarship holder is Ms. Amena Khavari from Afghanistan. Amena currently works as Provincial Technical Manager at Afghan Children Read Program, which is a five-year project funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) focused on improving equitable access to education for children.
We wish Amena good luck with her studies and we are beyond excited to have the chance to welcome her in the LIGS family!
Stay tuned for an exclusive interview with Amena.
