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.
Each year, we offer around 30 postgraduate scholarships to nationals from Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine. Our scholarships are fully funded and are primarily offered for one year postgraduate courses based in the UK. 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.
