The Bursary Award 2015 Ceremony was held on the 14th of September 2015 at our very own clubhouse premises. Dr Ahmad Mattar, ALWEHDAH Patron-in-Chief, together with Mr Khalid Basharahil, ALWEHDAH President, presented the awards to the 14 qualifying recipients.
The ALWEHDAH Bursary Award aims to provide financial support to bright Arab youths who have demonstrated potential for academic success and leadership. Each bursary award is valued at S$2,000.
This year, a special scholarly presentation was delivered by Ameen Talib Book Prize awardee, Nurfadzilah Bte Yahaya’, on her Master's thesis, entitled "Good Friends and Dangerous Enemies - British Images of the Arab Elite in Colonial Singapore (1819-1942)". The event was attended by close to 80 members of the Arab community, who warmly welcomed the efforts of ALWEHDAH in recognizing and supporting the education of our future Arab leaders.
