On Tuesday, April 17, HH Sheikh Mohammed directed the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), to organize the third Mohammed bin Rashid Distinguished Students Programme. Initially launched in 2017, the programme works in fulfilling HH Sheikh Mohammed’s efforts in providing high-quality education to distinguished Emirati students.
Managed by the KHDA in partnership with the Knowledge Fund and private school operators, the programme will offer brilliant Emirati students scholarships throughout their academic lives to help them get into some of Dubai’s best private schools. So far, the programme has benefited 314 Emirati students.
According to a statement, in order to join the Mohammed bin Rashid Distinguished Students Programme, the student “must be enrolled in Grade 3 or above; must be a UAE national from the emirate of Dubai; should pass written tests and oral interviews set by the school; and must be registered in a school for the academic year 2018/2019.”
