The Sheikha Fatima Awards:

This award includes a scholarship to cover a year’s tuition fee at a GEMS school and a memento. The Awards were started by GEMS in 2005 to honour Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, wife of late President His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, for her contributions to the empowerment of the UAE women, and her support for excellence in all areas. The event acknowledges Her Highness’ role as mother of the nation, and her vision to celebrate, and support women’s achievements and self-determination.

Sheikha Fatima Awards celebrate promising students in our schools and encourages them to maintain their social commitment as well as academic and extra-curricular excellence. These outstanding girls are nominated by their schools and chosen based on outstanding academic success, significant contribution to environmental concerns, and a high level of commitment to the communities they live in and their demonstration of world citizenship.
