For the past three years, the Nailekhanim Foundation has been providing a fully-funded scholarship program for talented female candidates interested in pursuing master's and doctoral studies at Khazar University, irrespective of their nationality.
It's important to note that the Nailekhanim Foundation, established as a non-profit organization, aims to honor the memory of Nailekhanim Isayeva, the co-founder of Dunya School and Khazar University. Nailekhanim Isayeva, the distinguished educator, significantly contributed to the development of both institutions through her dedicated efforts. The foundation stands as a testament to her profound commitment to science and education.
On November 24 of this year, the ceremony for awarding the Nailekhanim scholarship took place in the "Incichichayi" hall of the "Dunya" School. The event was attended by the administration of both educational institutions, representatives from state organizations, the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China, Mrs. Guo Min, and the head of the political department of the Embassy, Mrs. Sue Tsin. Additionally, the Ambassador of Mexico to our country, Mrs. Maria Victoria Romero Caballero, and other distinguished guests were present.
The chamber orchestra of Khazar University opened the event with a splendid performance, followed by the rendition of the National Anthem of Azerbaijan. Aygün Gardiner, the head of the Nailekhanim Foundation and director of the World School, MP Azay Guliyev, and Mrs. Maria Victoria Romero Caballero, the ambassador of Mexico to our country, shared thoughts on the ceremony's significance and extended their best wishes to this year's awardee.
In a panel discussion focused on the role of women in education and society, students engaged in a compelling conversation, bringing attention to various pertinent issues. Aygün Gardiner, the head of the Nailekhanim Foundation and Educational Center, awarded Monireh Bahrami the certificate for this year's winner. Monireh Bahrami expressed gratitude to the Foundation's management for the initiative and provided detailed information about herself to the participants.
The ceremony concluded with the students performing the song "My World," composed by Nailekhanim Isayeva
