Value of Award
The Trust provides a limited number of scholarships. Due to a limited amount of funds, sometimes it may be possible to provide only partial funding.
The scholarships can however cover fees and a monthly maintenance allowance.
Students should normally hold a good first degree
They must be fluent in English and able to benefit from study in the United Kingdom
They should normally be of Arab nationality, be resident in an Arab country and not hold British residency
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
There is no age limit but priority is given to those aged under 35
Scholars are expected to apply directly to a British university of their choice and to be able to provide a copy of that university's acceptance; they should also be able to secure through the British Council a visa or permission to enter the United Kingdom for the purposes of study
How to Apply
