Representatives of ADU's and Emirates Islamic's senior management also attended the meeting.

We believe educational institutions such as ADU have the moral obligation to develop the UAE's human capital through equipping students with the required knowledge and support them in all possible ways so that they can take up their rightful places as the leaders of tomorrow. ADU continues to follow the legacy of the founding father of the UAE, late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who believed in the vital need to engage the nation's young generation in economic, social, and cultural initiatives to achieve the country's wider development goals.” 

Commenting on the initiative, Awatif Al Harmoody, said: “We, at Emirates Islamic, constantly strive to provide financial assistance to those who need it. Students are our foundation for the future and supporting them today will help create a happier and more prosperous UAE in the future. The contribution is in line with our commitment to the UAE's Year of Giving initiative, and embodies the spirit of giving according to the provisions of Shari'a.”

ADU offers five types of scholarship programs: His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed scholarship, Chairman's scholarship, university scholarship, academic scholarship, and athletic scholarship. In addition, the University provides dedicated scholarships for graduate students and the Sanabil-Qutoof financial aid program,  

During the academic year 2016-2017, approximately 1,200 students benefitted from ADU's scholarship programs and financial aid valued at approximately AED20 million.
