Jaipur: Students from African countries – Gabon and Senegal – will be offered special scholarships by Poornima University, Jaipur. Employees working at some companies in these two countries will also get the opportunity to do short-term training here.

The co-founder of the university- Rahul Singhi, recently returned from visiting these countries under the delegation of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) with Vice President of India M. Venkaiah Naidu. This high-level business delegation was sent by CII along with the Vice President to explore new business opportunities in these two countries and to interact with the local businesses and governments there.

In this regard, Rahul Singhi informed that “through this visit, many new possibilities of mutual cooperation and investment emerged there. We signed MoUs with some educational institutions and companies there. Under this, in the academic session 2022-23, Poornima University will provide 100% special scholarship to 10 students each from Gabon and Senegal.”

He added, “These students will come to Poornima University to study through the Ministry of Education of these countries. MoUs have also been signed for exchange of students and faculty members, so our faculty members will get global exposure to the universities of Gabon and Senegal.”

“During the visit, some companies were also visited there including Gab Oil, Green Ply and La-Sante. Short-term training programs will be organized for the employees of some companies in the coming days at Poornima University, in which they will be given training in computer, IT, finance, marketing and other emerging sectors. However, before this, the administrative officers of these companies will come to Jaipur and visit Poornima University to see the educational facilities here,” Singhi said.
