Call for applications for the 2024 Qalaa Holdings Scholarship!

QHSF funds full Master’s degrees except in the fields of medicine, pharmacy and biosciences (as of 2024). The mode of study must be on-campus (online degrees are ineligible) and must be full-time, starting in the Fall intake. QHSF does not fund PhD degrees. This decision is decided based on the quality of the application, financial condition of the applicant and is ultimately assessed by the evaluating committee. It is decided case by case. QHSF does not fund students who have already begun their programs.

The application form is only accepted by postal mail or through our FEDEX account. Please wait a week after sending the application and send QHSF an email to ask for a confirmation of receipt. The email must be clearly titled and must contain your full name, university you are applying to and the date of sending the application. You can request a pdf copy of your application from the university’s records.

The main condition to apply for a QHS is to be accepted at the university of choice. A copy of a valid, official acceptance letter from the university is required for the application to be processed. Conditional acceptance letters are acceptable if they are solely on condition of funding. Acceptance letters with language conditions will not be accepted ( see update on website ).

QHSF have no preferred list, nor do it direct the scholars to where they should study. This is mainly because QHSF is not a specialized scholarship and are open to funding all academic disciplines and also because QHSF expects the applicants to have a good general knowledge of the field they want to further pursue. QHSF encourage the applicants to carefully research the different programs offered in their field of interest and aim for the most highly regarded ones that match their study needs and interests. Once an application is submitted, QHSF consults a wide variety of resources to assess the quality of the selected program and this (the quality of the program) ultimately constitutes a major criterion for the short listing of an application.

Applicants must choose only one award to apply to. If you happen to fall within the criteria of one of the specialized scholarships, then QHSF encourage you to apply for it. An applicant applying to more than one QHSF offered scholarship at the same time or more than one university within the same scholarship will be rejected.

  • The partial scholarship covering tuition only. The ceiling for tuition fees is 50,000 USD per annum.
