Bahrain: Woman ordered to refund scholarship money

The High Appeals Court rejected an appeal filed by a Bahraini woman challenging a court order obligating her to pay back the BD60,000 she received as a scholarship for her Master’s degree in Europe from the University of Bahrain.

UoB approached the Court to retrieve the money when the woman refused to work at the university after completing her studies as an alternative to repaying the scholarship funds as per a contract signed.

The defendant claimed that a medical condition prevents her from fulfilling her contractual commitment to the University. The Court, however, rejected her claim after the University proved that the first report she submitted to prove her illness was two years after the end of the scholarship.
