About our scholarships

Applications for our 2019/20 Saïd Foundation Scholarships opened on Wednesday 1 August 2018 and will close at 23.59 (UK time) on Thursday 1 November 2018.

The Saïd Foundation Scholarships Programme aims to promote education and development in the Middle East by providing educational and training opportunities to outstanding individuals who demonstrate the potential to become leaders and innovators of change. Our scholarships help career development and enable individuals to achieve impact in their professional fields and bring benefits to others in their countries of origin. Find out more about our scholarship programme, and meet some of our former students.

Each year, we offer around twenty postgraduate scholarships to nationals from Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Syria.

Our scholarships are fully funded and are primarily offered for one year postgraduate courses at one of our partner universities. In exceptional circumstances it may be possible to consider candidates for two year courses. The Foundation also offers one or two PhD/DPhil scholarships a year at the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge only. Click here for further details on how to apply for a PhD/DPhil scholarship.
