“Ebhar Misr” is a grant for gifted students in Egyptian governmental schools under the supervision of “Crédit Agricole Egypt Foundation for Development” and “Education First Foundation” under the supervision of Ministry of Education and Ministry of Social Solidarity. Believing in the importance of civil society and the private sector’s role in encouraging and motivating talented students, the program was established. The initiative aims to discover talented students in the fields of science, technology, and arts at the age of 14-18 years for all students in Egypt which takes place same time, every year. Ebhar Egypt seeks not only to discover talents but also to open more paths to their talents and projects. The grant also aims at sponsoring talented students in these areas by getting the companies, institutions, and civil society organizations that believe in the support of gifted youth to sponsor these talents. This is done through the selection of 25 school talents in science, information technology, and the arts where they enroll in an annual summer camp. The program has started in the summer of 2018 in which, the best 3 students went to a specialized camp for gifted students in the United States for a week as a reward and incentive for them to continue developing their talents. In addition, all gifted students enrolled in the summer camp received various support from sponsors of the program.
