The Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education shares Minerva's belief that education has the power to transcend academia and transform society — fostering hope, resilience, and impact.

The Al Ghurair STEM Scholars Program is offering full, four-year, need-based scholarships for Arab youth interested in pursuing a degree in a STEM-related field at Minerva, beginning in the Fall of 2018.

The scholarship covers all costs of your Minerva education, including tuition, housing, and other expenses such as travel and technology costs. 

Students must submit an application via the foundation's website and complete all parts of Minerva's admissions process in order to be considered.
