(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Orpic (Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company) recently signed an agreement at its headquarters in Sohar for the first batch of its international scholarships. 

Nine students have been carefully selected from schools in North Batinah governorate. The signing ceremony was held under the auspices of H E Sheikh Muhanna bin Seif al Lamki, Governor of North Batinah, in the presence of Orpic CEO Musab al Mahruqi, walis and sheikhs from the governorate, and other dignitaries, in addition to the students who have been awarded Orpic International Scholarships and their parents.

''At Orpic, we are very keen to provide the best training and support to our human resource personnel so they can keep upto- date with the latest developments in their specialised areas, so that they can better carry out their assignments, increasing productivity. Each year we also take on more than a 100 trainees in the company to give them hands-on experience.

The best of those trainees are then offered with employment opportunities at our facilities,'' said Nofal al Saidi, general manager of human resources services. We decided to award these scholarships to outstanding male and female students from North Batinah. This scheme mirrors our commitment to support local communities and provide talented students with opportunities to study at some of the world's elite universities.

This ensures that they return to Oman equipped with the required tools to add value to their communities.'' Said al Hashmi, Orpic's training centre manager said, ''The Orpic International Scholarships programme seeks to provide Omani students with opportunities for study at the most renowned universities in the world and allow their talents to develop and grow in a competitive education environment.

Orpic allocates US10m for the programme which will offer ten scholarships annually for five years '' Orpic, in collaboration with Takatuf Oman, marketed this programme to North Batinah schools earlier in the year.
