Applicable programmes


Students on a UAE Ministry scholarship are eligible for full tuition, a monthly stipend of over $3,200, an annual airline ticket, books and clothing, medical insurance, and other benefits.


  • UAE students are eligible for 10 different full scholarships to study in the United States, some of which are specific to a particular emirate.
  • Benefits differ depending on the UAE government entity awarding the scholarship.
  • UAE students on scholarship must attend universities and study majors approved by the scholarship-granting institution.
  • The UAE Ministry of Education, for example, approves the top 200 universities in the world as ranked by Quacquarrelli Symonds (QS) (50 of these are U.S. universities).
  • To qualify for a scholarship, students must be admitted into one of those universities as well as have English- language proficiency and a high GPA in Grade 12. Similarly, the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEK) restricts its scholarships to a list of 150 schools, based on a variety of academic rankings including QS, Times Higher Education, and US News.
  • The approved majors are determined by projected UAE job market needs and tend to favor STEM fields.
