NEOM Scholarship Students Honored in Chicago

NEOM, the sustainable regional development in northwestern Saudi Arabia, recently honored high-achieving scholarship students from the Tabuk region at a special event in Chicago. Led by NEOM CEO Nadhmi Al-Nasr, the occasion celebrated the educational accomplishments of 118 students from the 2023 Scholarship Program.

The program provides sponsorship for Tabuk students to pursue their tertiary studies abroad and gain valuable work experience. The event allowed the students to showcase their academic achievements, connect with NEOM leaders, and discuss future collaborations. Forty-nine students were recognized for their academic excellence or innovative contributions.

Notable figures from NEOM, including Professor Andreas Cangellaris, Dr. Mahmoud Alyamany, and Nada Alshaibani, attended the event. The students presented insights and perspectives on key NEOM projects, such as Trojena, Oxagon, and ENOWA.

NEOM CEO Nadhmi Al-Nasr emphasized the importance of academic excellence and community involvement, stating that the program aims to cultivate a generation that contributes to Saudi's Vision 2030. The Scholarship Program has supported over 740 students since its inception in 2019. Graduates are offered positions within NEOM's sectors, aligning their knowledge and skills with the expertise required for NEOM's future development.
