Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, has announced a scholarship programme to support meritorious Emirati public and private school graduates.

The Hamdan bin Mohammed Academic Scholarship Programme allocated Dhs1.1bn to support the higher education of the graduates. The initiative comes as part of the Dubai Social Agenda 33.

The new programme will top up the scholarships already in place by offering 75 additional scholarships, benefiting 100 outstanding students annually.

The selection criteria will be subject to the terms and conditions set by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

The application window will be aligned with the announcement of high school results taking into account timeframes for different curricula.

Sheikh Hamdan says programme will empower the next generation of local talent

Sheikh Hamdan, who has been recognising the top 25 high school students from Dubai for the past two academic years,  said: “Investing in Emiratis’ higher education and equipping our youth with knowledge is fundamental for building and sustaining a knowledgeable society.”

“Dubai’s Government has an unwavering commitment to provide the resources needed to empower top achievers, nurturing them to become competent and influential future leaders armed with advanced skills to enrich sectors in the emirate and write new chapters in Dubai’s development journey. This initiative recognises students pursuing academic achievements and personal aspirations, helping them achieve their goals,” added Sheikh Hamdan.

The Hamdan bin Mohammed Academic Scholarship Programme aims to position Dubai among the top 10 cities in terms of education quality globally by 2033.

The programme will contribute significantly to Dubai’s future knowledge-based economy by cultivating exceptional future leaders.

Additionally, the programme is designed to provide students scholarships to prestigious international universities for specialised studies that are compatible with the needs of Dubai’s economy.

It aims to help increase the number of citizens working in the private sector to thrice the current number.

How students can apply for the scholarship programme

The programme, which will fund 100 students annually, will start accepting applications in April for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Students can apply through the DubaiNow platform powered by the Dubai Digital Authority using the ‘Emarati’ icon.
