Bazzari Overcoming Poverty to Achieve Academic Excellence


Bazzari Azhar Azizi is an Indonesian student from Blitar in East Java. He studies Islamic Economics at Tazkia University in Bogor, having been fascinated by the subject since he was a child. He joined the university after graduating from the Institute of Kantor in 2010. Bazzari is from a very poor family. He is the eldest of three children and in order to ease the burden on his parents he tried desperately to find financial aid or a scholarship to cover the cost of his studies. Thanks to Qatar Charity’s ‘Sponsorship of Seekers of Knowledge’ project, Bazzari, was able to do just that. Qatar Charity covered a significant part of the costs of Bazzari’s studies and he currently averages ‘Excellent’ with a score of 3.94 out of 4.00. Bazzari is fluent in both Arabic and English and has a passion for scientific research and debates, winning a number of prestigious competitions in these fields, including: • Prize for the best speaker in debate completion in English at his university in 2011 • Second prize in a research competition on Islamic Economics at the Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta, 2013 • Second prize in the national Islamic Economics Olympics held at 11th March University in the city of Solo in 2013 • Best Paper Award at the Economic Research Forum in the Islamic Financial Field organized by the Central Bank of Indonesia in cooperation with a group of Islamic economics at the University of Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University, Jakarta, in 2013
