The Kuwait Program at Sciences Po (KSP) develops a range of initiatives for students and faculty. It supports students through an ambitious program of scholarships and awards, and also develops an academic network organized around a full-time professorship position, a visiting faculty program and a seed fund program for joint research projects.

The Kuwait Program at Sciences Po is a partnership between Sciences Po and the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS). Working together, the two institutions are supporting research and teaching of excellence in the social sciences and the humanities with special emphasis on the study of the Arab World and the Gulf Region.

The Kuwait Program expands its Excellence Scholarship flagship program which was first established in 2013. Building on this success, scholarships are now offered to an even larger group of incoming students, enrolled in a Master program at Sciences Po.

The KSP Excellence Scholarship supports outstanding students admitted to Sciences Po and enrolled on a program at the master level. Multiple scholarships will be awarded to the best candidates on a competitive basis.

KSP Excellence Scholarship for the Study of the Arab World and Gulf Region is open to candidates of all nationalities and dedicated to students admitted at PSIA who have chosen to focus on the study of the Arab World and Gulf Region.
