By Staff Reporter — MUSCAT: May 24: The Takatuf Scholars Programme, a unit within Takatuf Oman, held a recognition ceremony at the Intercontinental Hotel to honour the 131 students who completed the 2014-2015 Enrichment Programme as well as to recognise the 35 who were awarded an international scholarship.
This is a very important moment for this new batch of graduates, as they are now considered to be Takatuf Scholars. This means they are part of the Takatuf Scholars Network — bright young Omanis who are role models for their peers, who have acquired 21st century competencies that will support their success in both university and the workplace, and whose leadership skills have been tested and enhanced.
The Takatuf Scholars Programme is part of Takatuf’s commitment to developing Oman’s Human Capital at many stages and all levels. It is the pre-employment part of a lifelong process, where secondary school students are able to complete an enrichment programme that supports their success and where international scholarship winners are funded to attend some of the world’s most demanding schools and universities. The Programme’s effectiveness has been demonstrated through the performance of the scholars in leading schools in the UK, the USA, Canada and The Netherlands as well as in the admission of the first group of Takatuf Scholars 2012 into some of the world’s leading universities such as MIT, NYU, Imperial College and University College London.
