Not only providing critical financial support, but dedicated, personal guidance and mentoring – the AHR scholarship offers a wealth of benefits. We received a particularly strong set of applications this year, Reem stood out for her human-focussed approach. I thank AHR for their continued work to encourage students of architecture and look forward to seeing Reem progress in her studies.”
