Two students from Jordan and Mexico will be able to study at a prestigious university in Spain thanks to a scholarships program run by Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV), part of Abdul Latif Jameel Energy.

Announced following the visit of Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud’s visit to Spain, Abdul Latif Jameel Energy and FRV unveiled two new scholarships for young and upcoming leaders to study at Instituto de Empresa (IE), one of Spain’s top universities.

Abdul Latif Jameel Energy’s Young Talented Leaders Scholarship program supports young talent in the countries in which it operates. The scholarships being announced today relate to the projects Sawafi (65 MW dc) in Jordan, and Potosi Solar Farm in Mexico (342 MW dc).

The scholarship covers all training and education costs, including tuition fees, accommodation, academic materials, and allowances for travel and meals in Spain during the four-year degree program at IE University.

Roberto De Diego Arozamena, Chief Executive Officer of Abdul Latif Jameel Energy, said:

“The Young Talented Leaders Scholarship programme delivers on one of our top priorities as a business, which is our commitment to helping develop the communities in which we operate.

“We are giving young and talented individuals – including from the Middle East – the opportunity to complete their studies at a first-class university, helping them build their education and skills.”

Abdul Latif Jameel is supporting education and training in the Middle East a number of ways, including Toyota-MIT scholarships and the Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (J-WEL) at MIT.
