The Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Scholars Program offers a select cohort of talented university students unique access to specially designed courses, lectures, leadership experiences, networking, and graduate school opportunities and scholarships. It accepts Scholars from among the most outstanding students at the three national UAE universities: The Higher Colleges of Technology, the United Arab Emirates University, and Zayed University. The Scholars Program has been developed in close consultation with the Abu Dhabi Education Council, national extant universities and colleges in the UAE, and New York University Abu Dhabi.


As this program continues to mature and develop, there is increasing interest in this challenging opportunity amongst the country's very best students. I am pleased to welcome another year of highly capable scholars into the family of previous and current students.
