Genel20 Scholars

To mark 20 years of operations in the KRI Genel was pleased to launch our Genel20 Scholars programme. The programme will provide a university scholarship for 20 talented high school graduates, from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The programme was open to citizens of the KRI, with strong academic credentials and the potential to be future industry leaders in Kurdistan. Genel is pleased to be providing full funding for tuition and living expenses, as well as offering civic leadership and career-oriented workshops, internship opportunities, and faculty mentorship and guidance from Genel staff. A range of courses are being studied by the students, including Petroleum Engineering, Nursing, Accounting and Finance Management, and Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering.

The Genel20 Scholars programme provides a long-term commitment in the KRI and has the potential to transform the education and career opportunities for many families.
