As part of the Medicine and Science scholarship programme, the DHA will be providing Emirati high school graduates with a scholarship, to encourage Emiratis to enter healthcare-supporting fields.

The Director of Human Resources at the DHA, Amna Al Suwaidi said that in addition to the scholarship and covering of student’s expenses, the authority will be providing the students with monetary incentives throughout their studying years to encourage them to excel in their studies.

The authority will also provide the program’s students with priority when it comes to training and employment at DHA facilities.

She added that the DHA is working on adding more specialisations and skilled cadres to its facilities to meet the authority’s growing demand and to meet its Emiratisation objectives, which are among its most important developmental paths in the authority’s 2016/2021 strategy.

The Authority noted that applicants must complete an interview and should not have been accepted to another scholarship from another party.

Once accepted, the authority will cover his/her tuition fees, provide a monthly allowance, cover book costs and laptop cost. The authority will also provide the students with health insurance.

Applications will be open until July 19, 2018.
