Jeddah, October 06, 2018:  After Shahad Sari, who possess talented and gifted design skills, gave up hope on completing her undergraduate studies because her admission application was rejected by the only university that offers a fashion design program in her city due to limited seats, Dar Al-Hekma University has offered her full scholarship to study on its campus after seeing her creative designs on Twitter. 

Shahad biggest surprise happened when her friend posted her designs on Twitter and posted a link to the designs on Dar Al-Hekma Twitter account. Dar Al-Hekma responded and showcased her works to Dr. Suhair Al-Qurashi, President, who liked the designs and even recommended that the student get full scholarship. 

Dr. Al-Qurashi said the university attaches great significance to fostering talented young women, encouraging them to hone their skills and creating conducive environment to nurture their talents.

“Shahad is definitely a gifted student. I saw some of her works and was impressed. We, at Dar Al-Hekma, strive constantly to attract talented young women and give them creative opportunities and prepare them to be future leaders and entrepreneurs. Our aim is to build their capacities so that they can play efficient roles in social and economic development and serve the country in line with Vision 2030,” she said. 

In recognition of her fashion design talent, the university has granted her the Talented Students Scholarship. The conditions of the scholarship require student to have a percentage of 85 % or over and be talented in her field of study. Shahad Sari meets all these conditions. 

Thanking Dar Al-Hekma for this scholarship and Dr. Suhair Al-Qurashi, Shahad Sari said, “Dar Al-Hekma is a prestigious educational institution with an innovative vision aiming to build Saudi leaders, hone their skills and graduate students who are capable of making a positive social and economic change.”
