To further encourage high achieving university graduates in science majors we offer them a one year scholarship to pursue their Masters or PHD degrees. The elements of this program include the support of interim temporary Masters and Doctorate degree scholarships.

This initiative came in response to the need of the talented Kuwaitis who have received acceptance to complete their higher studies in prestigious universities worldwide without receiving any financial support from any other party. Accordingly, approved candidates will receive all costs and expenses of their study for the first year only, provided that the student shall seek financial sources to cover further expenses in subsequent years until graduation.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
