Wafic Saïd has endowed The Saïd Graduate Scholarships in Business Studies at Trinity College, Oxford. The endowment will fund the college fees of three students resident at Trinity and studying for an MBA at the Saïd Business School. The first scholarships were awarded in October 2006 to students taking their MBAs in the 2006/07 academic year.
Wafic Saïd commented: “Trinity has a long and distinguished academic tradition dating back to 1555. But it is also forward looking and has for some time recognised the important place that business studies play in a modern university curriculum. It has built a number of links with the Saïd Business School. In endowing these scholarships, I am delighted to be able to provide support both to Trinity and to the School.”
Wafic Saïd is an Honorary Fellow of Trinity College and the founding Benefactor of Oxford University’s Said Business School.
