The Dubai Municipality has begun accepting applications for the ‘Future Talents scholarship programme, which aims to welcome and guide UAE national university students studying in various scientific subjects that are highly sought after in the labor market.
The programme is part of Dubai Municipality’s efforts to provide attractive possibilities for university students, encourage the development of their skills and competencies, and support the Emiratisation policy in the Emirate of Dubai.
“The ‘Future Talents’ scholarship programme supports the Emiratisation policy in Dubai, and is consistent with the measures undertaken by Dubai Municipality to put our wise leadership’s directives into practice,” said Aisha Al Hammadi, Director of the Human Resources Department at Dubai Municipality. We think that by offering this programme, we will be able to attract brilliant Emirati students, enhance their skills, increase their scientific knowledge, provide them with practical experience, and equip them with the tools they will need to face future difficulties. These initiatives complement our commitment to worker advancement and the expansion of specialized occupations across Dubai Municipality’s sectors of activity.”
The disciplines highlighted in the program support the municipality’s employment fields and will help boost employment levels in those sectors, thereby strengthening its workforce sustainability. The ‘Future Talents’ scholarship program is open to students from a variety of scientific fields, which include civil and architectural engineering, agricultural engineering and sciences, public health, environmental sciences, sustainability and environmental health, food security, and information systems with a specialization in data science and business solutions, as well as information technology with specialization in application development, networking, and cloud computing.
