Sheikh Saqr Overseas Scholarship Program

Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammad Al Qasimi was passionate about education and encouraging young people to work hard and achieve their full potential. The overseas scholarship program was established in his name to honor his legacy. The scholarship program provides funding for academically talented Emirati youth and promising young Emirati professionals to pursue studies overseas at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels. 

Scholarships are awarded through a competitive application process. Secondary school students who wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree overseas are expected to participate in the Sheikh Saqr Student Enrichment Program. Those planning to complete graduate studies abroad are encouraged to contact the Al Qasimi Foundation for help identifying high-quality programs and universities to which to apply based on their academic and professional interests.
