UAE Scholarships Offered to Frontline Heroes and Their Children

It is no doubt that UAE’s frontline heroes have sacrificed and contributed hugely to combat Covid-19, and so UAE is now rewarding them by announcing a higher education scholarship program for frontline workers and their children.

It's in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, who is also the Chairman of the Frontline Heroes Office.

Eligible frontline heroes and their children will have access to scholarships for government and private universities and colleges across the UAE, starting from the 2021-2022 academic year.

The initiative, launched by the Frontline Heroes Office, is supported by Sandooq Al Watan and the private sector, and is being implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Education.

Eligible applicants can submit their scholarship request along with supporting documents and the acceptance letter from their chosen university or college to Education@FrontlineHeroes.ae.

The Frontline Heroes Office will send the scholarship requests directly to the relevant university or college.

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence and Chairman of Sandooq Al Watan, said: "Thanks to our wise leadership and efforts of frontline heroes across all sectors, the UAE has set a bright example in combating the pandemic. We are excited to support this initiative as it aligns fully with our core values at Sandooq Al Watan, inspired by the principles of giving and unity which are deeply rooted in Emirati culture. We are proud to contribute today by recognizing these heroes and appreciating their commitment and dedication in protecting everyone in the country."

Their continued bravery and dedication are evident across different sectors, and they reflect truly honorable examples embodying the UAE’s values and culture."
