The Education Team in Al Wefaq National Islamic Society said that 2015 saw the highest numbers of sectarian discrimination in the distributing of scholarships. The team’s conclusion was based on a comparative study over the past five years, since 2011.

The study looks at scholarships given to students who scored GPAs between 95% and 99% out of 100 over the past five years based on their choices.

In 2011-2012, the study looked at 116 distinct students, where:

21% were deprived from scholarship
18% received scholarship based on their first choice
4% received scholarship based on second choice
7% received scholarship based on third choice
49% were deprived from all first three choices they listed
1% were deprived from scholarship and stipend

In 2012-2013, the study included 101 distinct students, where:

25% were deprived from scholarship
7% received scholarship based on their first choice
3% received scholarship based on second choice
9% received scholarship based on third choice
54% were deprived from all first three choices they listed

In 2013-2014, the study looked at 108 distinct students, where:

10% were deprived from scholarship
30% received scholarship based on their first three choices
60% were deprived from all first three choices they listed

In 2014-2015, the study looked at 109 distinct students, where:

8% were deprived from scholarship
17% received scholarship based on their first choice
6% received scholarship based on second choice
8% received scholarship based on third choice
61% were deprived from all first three choices they listed

In 2015-2016, the study looked at 146 distinct students, where:

33.6% were deprived from scholarship
17.8% received scholarship based on their first choice
0.7% received scholarship based on second choice
4.1% received scholarship based on third choice
7.44% were deprived from all first three choices they listed

The team concluded, based on these numbers, that 2015-2016 statistics revealed the highest number of the practice of discrimination in the distribution of scholarships, over the past five years. At least 127 out of a total of 630 students were deprived from the scholarship they deserved over these years. The ministry of education in Bahrain must reveal the names and GPAs of the students who received the 228 medicine scholarships it announced, on top of those in other majors.
