The health of all applicants to the program as well as the health of our executive partners has the highest priority for us. We will therefore apply an abundance of caution throughout all stages of the program.
Same as last year, in 2021 the selection interviews for the Qimam Fellowship will be run virtually to avoid the requirement for travel. As far as the program itself is concerned, same as in previous years, our objective is to operate the program in-person in Riyadh. Whether or not this will be possible will depend on the health situation at that time. We will monitor the situation and follow the guidance of the health authorities on the matter. Selected fellows will be informed closer to the date on the final decision. Should it not be possible to run the program in-person due to health concerns, the program would be run virtually in the same time period planned for the in-person program (8 – 19 June 2021).
