Three students from Dar Al-Hekma University in Jeddah have been selected for the Qimam Fellowship Program, which empowers high-potential university students in the Kingdom.
Nouf Hassan Al-Malki, Rawan Al-Marwani Al-Juhani and Lamia Al-Otaibi were among 50 students chosen from 13,000 applicants. The program selects students from all specializations at local universities based on three criteria: excellence, initiative and social responsibility.
The three young women were honored during a special ceremony and presented with the Qimam medal for promising leaders in recognition of their outstanding performance. The students’ profiles will be shared with leading human resources executives in the Kingdom to broaden their career opportunities.
They also had 12 days of in-person intensive training and mentorship in Riyadh by executives and accomplished professionals from leading companies such as the Saudi Telecom Company and Bab Rizq Jameel, in addition to attending workshops building a successful career in the area of their choice.
The Qimam Fellowship Program, launched last June, aims to identify, develop and empower the most promising and distinguished university students in and from the Kingdom to reach their full potential.
It is supported by 14 leading national and international companies from the public and private sectors and provides the selected students with one-on-one mentoring from senior corporate leaders, leadership training by professionals from renowned companies, visits to the Saudi Arabian offices of leading national and international companies and, membership of the Qimam Alumni Network.
More than 50 leading executives from both sectors have volunteered to provide one-on-one mentoring and help students to build a successful career.
