OFID announces 2019 scholars


After qualifying, many of OFID’s student ambassadors have returned to their home countries to work in development-related fields.


By Fatma Elzahra Elshhati O


FID’s scholarship award program provides opportunities for young, promising individuals to fulfil their potential and complete


graduate studies. This year, OFID received more than 7,400 applications from aspiring academics from its partner countries. After a rigorous selection procedure, 10 students were chosen to undertake graduate studies in fields ranging from Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation to Urban Management, Physical Land Management and Development Economics. With OFID’s sponsorship, Ahmed


Mohammed from Egypt will study Water


Science and Engineering, specializing in Hydroinformatics at the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education. Similarly, Eden Tsehaye from Ethiopia will study to gain expertise in sustainable agriculture practices via a Geo-information Science and Earth Observation graduate degree at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. Through a Master’s degree in Water and Sanitation (WASH) for Development from Cranfield University in the UK, Prisca Nyamukondiwa from Zimbabwe aims help improve WASH services to rural areas in her home country. Approximately 44 percent of Zimbabwe’s population does not have adequate access to these services. Chung Do from Vietnam wishes to focus


on the Mekong Delta, an important industrial area in Vietnam. Nowadays, the rural area of the Mekong Delta is under pressure from manufacturing and the impacts of climate change. Chung wishes to contribute to sustainable development in his region by learning proper planning and waste management practices at Ghent University. The scholars hail from countries including Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Colombia and Belize and will join a global cohort of OFID scholars as the program enters its 13th year. After qualifying, many of OFID’s student ambassadors have returned to their home countries to work in development- related fields.
