Scholarships for Emirati Students

Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed NYU Abu Dhabi Scholarship

In recognition of NYUAD's highly-selective admissions process, and of the important role that the University plays in shaping future world leaders, the Abu Dhabi government provides fellowships to all admitted UAE nationals, and children of Emirati mothers, in the form of the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed NYUAD Scholarship for Exceptional Emirati Students.

The fellowship covers the tuition, registration fees, foreign travel for study integral to a student's academic program, room and board (meals), health insurance, books, and many campus life activities for four years.

Additionally, UAE national students may be eligible for a need-based personal support award. A CSS Profile application and demonstrated need is required, annually, to be considered..
