Qatar Science Leadership Programme (QSLP) attracted more than 115 students to an open information session, signifying their growing interest in scientific research.

Held at Texas A&M University at Qatar, the session hosted young scholars who shared their QSLP research journeys with their peers.

Stressing the significance of the attendees, Dr Ayman Bassil, Head of Research Training and Development, Qatar Foundation Research and Development, said, “The turnout at the session illustrates a growing appetite for scientific research among the nation’s youth.

“They are becoming increasingly aware of its importance and benefits in relation to their future.

“We always seek to maintain dialogue with younger students interested in joining QSLP, as it enables us to tailor our programmes to their needs, working together to build a knowledge-based economy.

“Moreover, the informed questions students asked at the session are testimony to QF’s efforts to generate youth interest in and awareness about scientific research.”

For Rashid Al Kaabi, a recent graduate from CMU-Q, his registration for QSLP is a way to give back to his country.

“QSLP pays special attention to young people and provides them with lots of support. This has helped my development tremendously.

“The support I have received at QSLP has also allowed me to pursue my passion for scientific research and realise my dream to contribute to my country through scientific research.”

QSLP offers budding scholars four pathways that cater to every level of their scholarly careers, including the Research Undergraduate Track, which aims to encourage ambitious recent graduates to pursue scientific investigation, and the Research Management Track, which allows trainees to gain practical experience in critical areas related to research management.
