The purpose:

To develop future QOC leaders, managers and employees that will add value to the effectiveness of the

QOC.

Types of QOC’s Scholarship Programmes:

1. Scholarship (Overseas) Programme.

2. Sponsorship (Domestic) Programme.

3. Talented Athletes (Overseas & Domestic) Programme.

QOC Scholarship Programme:

QOC’s Scholarship programme aligns with the public policy of Qatarization in relation to Qatar Development

Strategy 2011-2016 and Vision 2030. As a large employer, QOC is committed to developing its workforce

by providing international higher education opportunities to eligible Qatari students. QOC’s International

students are typically placed in western universities, primarily located in the USA and the UK.

The emphasis of the scholarship programme is on the annual recruitment of graduating seniors from Qatar’s

public and private high schools. The final stage of QOC’s International scholarship program is when the

graduating Qatari student completes undergraduate study and returns to QOC as a meaningful member of a

dynamic workforce with unlimited career opportunities.

QOC’S Sponsorship Programme:

QOC recognizes the need to project and plan for its manpower needs over the next few decades. A key

aspect of this is an effective recruitment, selection, and personnel assignment program which aligns with

Qatarization as embedded in Qatar Development Strategy (2011-2016) and Vision 2030.

A fundamental aspect of the Sponsorship Program is to ensure “capacity building and career development”

by providing local higher education sponsorship opportunities at select universities for Qataris. A culminating

aspect of QOC’s sponsorship program occurs when the graduating Qatari student becomes a member of a

dynamic QOC workforce.
