Various other multi-million dollar scholarship funds are also currently being provided by both public and private organisations across the Middle East, with new funds being recently announced and launched.

This session will provide information on the opportunities currently available to recruit scholarship students and will offer practical advice on how to work successfully with scholarship organisations in the Gulf region. It will also include the latest update specifically on the Saudi Scholarship Programs from the Saudi Cultural Mission.
