KRG pays about $1m to students on government scholarship abroad

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has announced the allocation of about $1 million to its prestigious scholarship programs to pay unpaid installments for its candidates abroad, according to a statement by the Ministry of Higher Education (MHE).

“The financial committee in the Ministry of Higher Education has allocated the payments for the students of the Human Capacity Development Program [HCDP] on the first list in 2018,” said Abbas Akram, the MHE spokesperson.

Akram added the payments will be distributed to 40 students in several countries abroad, allocating $947,827.

He urged the students or their trustees to collect their paycheck from the MHE on the due date announced on the list.

The government has allocated $30 million for the HCDP students to be distributed in phases, said Akram, making $19 million in payments so far.

MHE had been unable to make payments to students overseas in the past, due to the Region’s financial crises. This caused the students a lot of difficulties — including not receiving their certificates after graduation because of debts owed to universities.

The KRG introduced the HCDP in 2010. Since then, more than 4000 students have received scholarships to study at prestigious universities abroad.
