📝 Description

This session will be in panel format and discuss scholarship programs specifically in the Arab Gulf and Middle East. The session will begin with a general update on new scholarship opportunities, then a panel discussion with university representatives who have worked with scholarship programs and offer insights as to how to begin the process of securing approvals and “getting on the lists,” the challenges of working with scholarship programs, and the positive outcomes of working with scholarship students.

The goal of this session is to leave with a deeper understanding of how to get approved for scholarship programs as well as how to navigate the process from receiving approval to receiving students.
