Gulyuzbonu Ruziboyeva — Winner of a Scholarship from the Karimov Foundation

Following her graduation from the Tashkent Institute of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Gulyuzbonu Ruziboyeva was awarded the Karimov Foundation’s two-year scholarship, enabling her to pursue her master’s degree at the University of Anhalt in Germany.

From her early childhood, Gulyuzbonu liked to observe the construction of houses and their layout, and dreamt of becoming an interior designer. Thanks to her talent, diligence and hard work, she received a bachelor’s degree with honours in Tashkent, and the Karimov Foundation’s scholarship programme has provided her with an exceptional opportunity to pursue her postgraduate education at one of the best universities in Europe.

“I hope that after my graduation I will be able to apply my experience and knowledge in Uzbekistan. I will be very happy to contribute to the development of town planning and architecture in my native country,” said Gulyuzbonu.
Over the past two years, the Karimov Foundation has awarded scholarships to 22 young people from Uzbekistan, who are now studying for their master’s degree at some of the leading universities in Germany, Italy, Poland and Russia.
