Harvard Kennedy School Establishes Fellowship for
Students from the Middle East and North Africa

Cambridge, Mass. - Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) today announced the creation
of the Middle East-North Africa Graduate Fellowship Fund underwritten by a $1
million gift from the Norwegian oil and gas company DNO International ASA.

The fellowship will support qualified applicants who enroll at HKS through the
Edward S. Mason Program. The internationally focused Mason Program brings
accomplished professionals from around the world to earn a Mid-Career Master
in Public Administration (MC/MPA) degree, with a focus on developing
analytical and leadership skills.

"My DNO International colleagues, which include two other HKS graduates, and I
are pleased to help support access to the finest school of public policy in
the world by the most talented mid-career students from a region undergoing
dramatic societal transformation," said Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani, MPA 1982 and
DNO International's Executive Chairman.

The program will cover tuition, fees and living expenses for the one-year term
of the Mason Program, with awards available beginning with the 2014-15
academic year. Along with the rigorous MC/MPA curriculum, the Mason Program
offers intensive co-curricular activities including targeted seminars and
workshops culminating in the Mason Certificate in Public Policy and
Management.

"We are deeply grateful to DNO International for this outstanding support for
students from the Middle East and North Africa and for the leadership that
Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani has shown in this effort," said David Ellwood, the
Scott M. Black Professor of Political Economy and Dean of HKS. "These
students represent a region of great importance to the world, and we are
fortunate to play a role in developing their knowledge and expertise in
working towards the public good. We look forward to welcoming the first
beneficiaries of this fellowship."

Oslo-based DNO International was founded in 1971 and is Norway's oldest
publicly listed oil and gas company. It is active in Oman, Yemen, the United
Arab Emirates, Somaliland, Tunisia and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Mr.
Mossavar-Rahmani and his wife Sharmin have a longstanding connection to the
Kennedy School and to public service education, having endowed the
Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government with a commitment to
research, scholarship, and teaching to address some of society's most
challenging problems at the intersection of business and government. Ellen K.
Dyvik, MPA 1990, is a member of DNO International's Board of Directors. Anita
H. Aarnæs, MPA 1983, is DNO International's Director of Human Resources.
