Harvard Witnesses Graduation of 60 Saudi Students from Elite Universities

The Saudi Club at Harvard University organized a ceremony to honor Saudi graduates from Harvard, MIT, Boston University, and Tufts University. The event took place on the Harvard campus in Boston. It was attended by Mohammed Khashaan, the Director of the Public Diplomacy Department at the Kingdom’s Embassy in the USA.

During the ceremony, Khashaan highlighted the graduation of the distinguished batch of Saudi students from top US universities, coinciding with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 transformations.

He also stressed that the Kingdom is witnessing economic, industrial and environmental growth, accompanied by renewed opportunities for Saudi nationals to discover their dreams and contribute to building the future of the nation and the world.

The United States Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Michael Ratney, also gave a recorded speech in which he congratulated the graduating students and thanked the Saudi Club for organizing this event to celebrate the students’ wonderful achievements this year.

He said: “I have only been in Saudi Arabia for a year. The professional and personal opportunities here have never been greater.” “Greater than now, your country is rich in resources, but what is most valuable is its human capabilities.”

Success of Saudi Students Abroad

In turn, the president of the Saudi Club at Harvard University, a graduate of the doctoral program at the University’s College of Dentistry, Malak Al-Hadlaq, thanked the wise leadership on behalf of her fellow students, in appreciation of the unlimited support they received during the scholarship period.

Al-Hadlaq confirmed that this support facilitated their graduation from top international universities. Many graduates, both male and female, have attained notable research and scientific accomplishments. They express a desire to return home and contribute to its development, utilizing their acquired knowledge as a means of giving back to their homeland.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, Khashaan honored the 60 graduate students this year, namely 9 graduates from the bachelor’s stage, 32 from the master’s stage, 3 from the doctoral stage, 16 from the fellowship stage, and 1 fellowship with doctorate, with 27 graduates from the University of Harvard, 18 from Boston University, 8 from Tufts University, and 7 from MIT.

The number of Saudi students graduating from elite universities in Boston rose by about 20% compared to last year. This marks a significant achievement for the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques’ scholarship program.

It is worthy to note that each of the four universities mentioned above ranks highly internationally, including in rankings like Shanghai, QS, and The Times.
