Darley announces recipients for the first year Dubai Equine Science Scholarships

The first group of Chinese University students to win the Dubai Equine Science Scholarships has been announced.

Dubai Equine Science Scholarships (DESS) was launched in 2015. It is designed to provide financial support to Chinese students with an interest in equine studies.

Each year, 24 scholarships are offered to students studying Animal Science or Veterinary Medicine at seven of China’s best universities. Each successful applicant will be awarded RMB 15,000, which is to be used to cover their tuition and living expenses during their final year of university.

In addition, one student from each university will be selected to visit one of Darley’s world famous thoroughbred stud farms where they will receive an introduction to the thoroughbred breeding industry. This visit is also a possible stepping stone to Darley’s Dubai International Thoroughbred Internships (DITI) programme.

James Hall, Director of Darley’s activity in China said, “It is a great pleasure to announce the first group of Dubai Equine Science Scholarship recipients. We are delighted to provide valuable financial assistance to outstanding students who are committed to developing the future of a healthy Chinese horse industry.”
