ISMAANA Scholarship Programs
Currently, ISMAANA has two types of ongoing scholarship programs.
1) Merit Scholarships – Eight final year students were awarded ISMAANA merit scholarship earlier this month. ISMAANA started these scholarships in 2015 to recognize the top two students in four earth science branches based on the first three years’ academic performance. As our funds permit, we plan to extend these scholarships to other branches of study. Below is a list of merit scholarship winners with their pictures of receiving the award along with faculty advisors.
