SHARJAH, H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, in his capacity as the president of the University of Sharjah (UoS) and the American University of Sharjah (AUS), has issued a decision amending some of the regulations of scholarships continuity.

The decision stipulates that the total number of additional allowance units granted to non- achieving students in both the Bachelors and Diploma programmes throughout the years of study be increased to an equivalent of load of units of one full semester (12 - 16 units).

The decision stems from HH's keenness to encourage students of both UoS and AUS on scholarship programmes to exert further efforts and to successfully complete their studies that will prepare them to get involved in the various fields of the labour market.

HH called on students to work harder to accomplish their studies to help themselves and their families, and to contribute to the development of their societies.
