Ministry of Education - Higher Education Affairs

Sending UAE male and female students on scholarships to pursue undergraduate and graduate studies abroad stems from the policy drawn up by the late His Highness (H.H.) Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. His goal was qualifying and training Emiratis so that they could participate in the dynamic growth of the UAE. The scholarship program at the Ministry of Higher Education & Scientific Research (MOHESR) is intended to meet the society’s demands of various specializations that will contribute to the economic and social progress in the UAE.
