Dar Al Tifl Scholarships

These highly successful programmes, begun in 2007 came to an end in 2023 with the graduation of the final Higher Education scholarship holder.

A memorial to the scholarship programmes


As part of DSMT’s final donation to Dar Al Tifl, a memorial plaque has been made for display at the school. This shows the names of all the girls who have received DSMT School and HE scholarships and will be a lasting and public reminder of the valuable educational opportunities provided by the DSMT in Dominic’s memory. The heading for the plaque reads: In memory of Dominic Simpson, who died in 2004, the Dominic Simpson Memorial Trust  (DSMT) was pleased to fund a school and higher education scholarship programme to enable talented students from Dar Al Tifl School to continue their education. Between 2007 – 2021 over seventy girls received awards
