Presidential Scholarship Program
The Presidential Scholarship Program started in 1998 by a decree from the Late Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan specifically geared for distinguished United Arab Emirates students who graduate from their high schools and who meet specific academic criteria.
Initially, the scholarship was meant for the selected students to attend United Arab Emirates Universities only; however, there are students who have been sent to the United States, Great Britain, New Zealand and Canada.
All Presidential Scholarship undergraduate students receive $3,000 (USD) monthly allowance. Graduate students receive $3,500 (USD) monthly allowance.
