STEM SCHOLARS PROGRAM – Al Ghurair STEM Scholars program
If you are an exceptional student with a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) and you are curious, creative, and determined to pursue your dreams regardless of your circumstances, the Al Ghurair STEM Scholars Program can offer you the scholarship and support system you need to realize your goals.
We create opportunities to activate the untapped potential of Arab youth, providing underserved, high-achieving students with the scholarships, support and skills training that they need to thrive. We imagine a world where our scholars become leaders in their communities and ambassadors of education in the region. We aim to reignite what is already in the region’s DNA: a culture of giving back, a connectedness to community, and a spirit of generosity that creates impact.
- The Foundation will be accepting applications for scholarships to study at the American University of Beirut (AUB), the American University in Cairo (AUC) and the American University of Sharjah (AUS)
- There are 2 cycles annually for our different partner universities.
- In February 2019 the program will open a second call for other universities in the region (Palestine, Jordan, and Morocco)
