The Zamir Telecom MBA Scholarship has been established at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.
The gift of £15,000 per year for three years will fund one scholarship annually for a promising young professional from the technology sector studying for the Oxford MBA programme.
It is open to applicants from an emerging economy in Africa, Asia or the Middle East or to those from other countries who have an interest in technological advancement in these areas.
Zamir Telecom views these regions as future hubs for innovation and the scholarship will allow individuals to connect with the organisation in the UK and its operations in emerging economies. In addition to the scholarship funding, the company will also provide each scholar with a paid internship and a one-year employment contract on graduation.
“There are many talented young people around the world and this gift will enable us to open up the opportunity for them to make connections they would otherwise never make and go on to shape the future of technology provision in the emerging economies,” says Peter Tufano, dean of Saïd Business School.
