•        Nahyan Bin Mubarak: “We are proud of the frontline heroes' efforts and dedication to the safety of the UAE's community”

•        Sultan Bin Tahnoon: “We strive to repay the sacrifice of these heroes who work tirelessly to protect our community”

Abu Dhabi, 28 April, 2021: In line with the directive of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Chairman of the Frontline Heroes Office, to support frontline workers and implement short and long-term solutions, the Frontline Heroes Office has announced a Higher Education Scholarship Program. Supported by Sandooq Al Watan and the private sector, and in partnership with the Ministry of Education, eligible frontline heroes and their children will have access to scholarships for government and private Universities and Colleges across the UAE.

Recognizing the efforts and sacrifices of those working on the frontlines and their roles in protecting the community, eligible frontline heroes and their children will qualify for scholarships starting from 2021-2022 academic year.

H.E. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, Chairman of Sandooq Al Watan, said: “Thanks to our wise leadership and efforts of frontline heroes across all sectors, the UAE has set a bright example in combating the pandemic. We are excited to support this initiative as it aligns fully with our core values at Sandooq Al Watan, inspired by the principles of giving and unity which are deeply rooted in Emirati culture. We are proud to contribute today by recognizing these heroes and appreciating their commitment and dedication in protecting everyone in the country.”

H.E. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan assured Sandooq Al Watan's support and praised the private sector for standing behind this humanitarian and community initiative which aims to support the UAE's frontline heroes and their children, pointing out that this is part of the corporate social responsibility for the private sector in the UAE. Education
 
is one of the cornerstones for building a better future and developing the community, as well as activating the private sector's role in supporting and enabling young talent.

H.E. Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Frontline Heroes Office, reinforced that this initiative is in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to support frontline heroes and their families who have set the greatest example in sacrificing their own health and safety to protect the UAE's community.

His Excellency expressed his appreciation and gratitude for His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed's ongoing support of frontline workers and standing behind them and their families during these challenging times.

Adding: “The Frontline Heroes Office dedicates all efforts possible to repay the sacrifice of these heroes who continue to work selflessly to protect our community during the pandemic. Their continued bravery and dedication are evident across different sectors, and they reflect truly honorable examples embodying the UAE's values and culture.”

H.E. Hussain bin Ibrahim Al Hammadi, Minister of Education, said: “We, at the Ministry of Education value the support from Sandooq Al Watan and the private sector in providing higher education scholarships to frontline heroes and their children, highlighting their commitment to social contribution, higher education, and the principles of unity and cooperation in the community.”

To benefit from this initiative, eligible applicants can submit their scholarship request along with supporting documents and the acceptance letter from their chosen University or College to Education@FrontlineHeroes.ae.

Eligible requests will be collated by the Frontline Heroes Office and sent to the relevant University or College directly. This initiative is aimed at those working on the frontlines and their families in order to fulfil their higher education goals, while reducing the financial burden during the COVID-19 pandemic.
