Al Jalila Foundation is invested in nurturing the next generation of medical talent in the UAE through providing scholarships to promising young medical students.
One shining student was 2016 high school graduate Thannon Aysar Thannon who excelled in his studies and was looking to get into a prestigious medical school. Thannon was accepted into Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) six-year program in Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). In addition to earning the coveted place at MBRU his record was so outstanding that he received the Al Jalila Foundation scholarship based on merit.
“As a result of receiving the Al Jalila Foundation scholarship, I have been able to follow my passion to become a doctor and transform the lives of people. It is an honour to receive the scholarship, which has helped me to gain new skills and move forward towards my goals. The scholarship has given me the freedom to seek out learning opportunities in the UAE and beyond. This has further prepared me to serve the local community and become a better equipped doctor in the process.”
Thannon has excelled at every level of his studies and is on track to graduate the class of 2022 and we look forward to watching as he starts the next chapter of his medical career.
