Scholarships


The Trust provides a limited number of scholarships for graduates from Arab countries to study at British universities for one year taught masters degrees. The scholarships normally cover fees and a monthly maintenance allowance. Scholars must be nominated by partner organisations; the Trust does not accept direct applications.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TRUST'S SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME IS NOW FULLY COMMITTED. THE TRUST CANNOT ACCEPT ANY NEW SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS.


A number of conditions apply to these scholarships.

  1. Students should normally hold a good first degree
  2. They must be fluent in English and able to benefit from study in the United Kingdom
  3. They should normally be of Arab nationality, be resident in an Arab country and not hold British residency
  4. They should be able to demonstrate that the chosen course of study is of clear benefit to their home country or the wider Arab world and that they intend to return to their home country or another Arab country after the completion of their studies
  5. There is no age limit but priority is given to those aged under 35
  6. Once nominated and accepted scholars are expected to apply direct to a British university of their choice (preferably outside London) and to be able to provide a copy of that university's acceptance; they should also be able to secure a visa or permission to enter the United Kingdom for the purposes of study
