Redesigning Qatar's Post-Secondary Scholarship System. Research Brief
Augustine, Catherine H.; Krop, Cathy
RAND Corporation
At the request of Qatar's Supreme Education Council (SEC), RAND researchers devised a new set of scholarship programs for college-bound Qatari students and proposed the formation of an institute to manage the programs and oversee other post-secondary functions. The suggested system balanced support for local institutions of higher learning with support for students studying abroad and was designed to help Qatar meet specific post-secondary and workforce needs. Within one year, the SEC implemented most of the study's recommendations. [This research brief describes work documented in "Aligning Post-Secondary Educational Choices to Societal Needs: A New Scholarship System for Qatar," by Catherine H. Augustine and Cathy Krop.]
