Application Deadline: Teacher Scholarships

The Teacher Scholarship Awards are open to teachers from all nationalities who are teaching in a Ras Al Khaimah government school or working in the Ras Al Khaimah Ministry of Education. There are two types of scholarships included in this program:

  • Academic: These Scholarships cover up to 50% of the tuition costs associated with either a master’s degree or short-term course (1-3 month duration). Qualifications must be in education or closely related to education and should seek to improve the applicant’s teaching abilities and effectiveness in the classroom. Qualifications that expand applicants’ knowledge of the subject areas they teach may also be considered on a case-by-case basis. For applicants interested in earning their master’s degree, the chosen qualification must be offered through an accredited university or institution.
    • Examples of degrees and short-term courses ELIGIBLE for funding include: master's in education, English language courses, TOEFL preparation courses, International Computer Driving License (ICDL) courses.
    • Examples of degrees and short-term courses NOT ELIGIBLE for funding include: doctorate (PhD) degrees, master’s in business (EMBA or MBA), engineering, and other degrees and courses unrelated to education.
  • Action Research: These Scholarships provide an applicant with up to 10,000 AED to undertake a small-scale, action research project in his/her classroom or school. The projects should address an identified need related to improving teaching or enhancing student learning, and the research may be carried out by an individual or small group of teachers.

Teacher Scholarship Award applications undergo a preliminary review upon submission to ensure they meet minimum eligibility criteria. Those that meet or exceed the criteria are compiled until the appropriate application deadline, at which point they are forwarded to the selection committee for collective review.

The Al Qasimi Foundation reviews Teacher Scholarship Award applications on a rolling basis pending availability.
