SHSS Student Salma Daoudi Receives Gates Scholarship to Cambridge University


Al Akhawayn International Studies student Salma Daoudi (2018) has been awarded a prestigious Gates Cambridge Scholarship to pursue a Master of Philosophy in International Relations and Politics at the University of Cambridge. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation established the scholarship in 2000, specifically "for intellectually outstanding postgraduate students with a capacity for leadership and a commitment to improving the lives of others" who want to pursue a degree at Cambridge. Only 55 non-American students are honored globally with the award each year and AUI is delighted that Salma is the first Moroccan to be one of the awardees!
