Sheikh Hamdan Grants Scholarships to UAE Top Students

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council met with Dubai’s top-performing high school students in Emirates Towers.

The students, who graduated from their respective curriculum during the academic year 2021-2022, were drawn from public and private schools and various curricula. 


The system includes discretionary incentives providing top achievers with opportunities for academic scholarships and financial rewards. Emirati students can obtain scholarships within and outside the country at the most prestigious international universities.

Resident students can get financial aid for international university branches in free zones and a priority issuance of golden visas for them and their families.


Under the KHDA and Dubai’s public and private schools, a smart electronic system is applied to standardise high school results across different curricula to ensure fairness while calculating grades. This system identifies Dubai’s top achievers across diverse curricula and is aligned with international best practices.

The system identified the top 50 male and female high school students for the academic year 2021-22, as of August 2022. These included 25 Emirati and 25 resident students from select curricula, including the UAE’s Ministry of Education, American (advanced level), International Baccalaureate, and British curricula. The cohort also includes graduates of Grade 12 and Year 13.
