News

The Qimam Fellowship Program that was launched in February 2018 attracted more than 13,000 applications and of these, only 150 applicants made to the next round and finally just 50 selected few made the cut as the Qimam Fellows. Now as the curtains fall down on the first edition of the fellowship program all the 50 fellows were presented with the ‘Qimam Award for High-Potential Leaders,’ at an graduation ceremony by Qimam and its partners to recognize their achievement and distinction. Tom Isherwood, partner at McKinsey & Company, stated: “We believe that Saudi Arabia is rich with extraordinary talent and were delighted to take the concept of Qimam under our wing when it was still just an idea. We are a member of this community and incubating and launching the Qimam Fellowship Program is a demonstration of our commitment to the Kingdom through identifying and developing future leaders. I congratulate the first batch of the very talented Qimam Fellows on their graduation.”

Abdullah AlDawood, Group CEO of Al Tayyar Travel Group, stated: “The Qimam Fellowship is a ground-breaking initiative and effort and Al Tayyar has been its strategic partner from day one. I am proud to see that it is now a viable initiative that promises to become an institution with the potential to enhance the quality of leadership in the entire region. It is a first of its kind and Al Tayyar is truly happy to support not only Qimam, but the individual fellows themselves.”Dr. Annas Abedin, founder of the Qimam Fellowship, stated: “Qimam aims to identify, develop, and empower the most promising and distinguished university students in Saudi Arabia. Working with 50 of the brightest talent for the duration of the fellowship has been a great experience. I am humbled by the outstanding potential we have on our hands and confident that our fellows will have a tremendous positive impact on our future. From day one, the Qimam Fellowship has been a true group effort and would not have been possible without the support of all parties involved.”
