New scholarships at our schools and Hamad Bin Khalifa University.

We’re turning 25 in 2020 and decided to launch a few new scholarships in celebration.



In celebration of our 25th anniversary, we launched two new scholarships for students interested in studying at Qatar Foundation

Who can apply


Scholarship applications are closed for this year. Please check this page for future updates.

The two scholarships are exclusive to a few schools and programs.

The first is the merit-based ‘Pre-University Education Merit Scholarship.’ It will be available for 19 students who are interested in studying at Qatar Academy’s Doha, Al Khor, Al Wakra, and Sidra branches or Qatar Academy for Science and Technology.

The students should:

  • be enrolled in a school outside Qatar Foundation.
  • currently be studying in Grade 10 or an equivalent.
  • apply for the scholarship before they apply for school admission.

The scholarship will:

  • cover 100 percent of school fees, including tuition, technology, educational resources, and book fees.
  • cover students for two years (both Grades 11 and 12 will be covered).
  • not cover any application, registration, and other school-related activity fees.

    The second scholarship is need-based and is exclusively for graduate students interested in Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s master’s programs. Students must already be admitted to the university and should not already be receiving any form of financial aid from Hamad Bin Khalifa University or Qatar Foundation.
