Application Process of Saudi Government Scholarship 2024
Dear students, I’d like to guide you through the process of applying for a Saudi government scholarship for the batch of 2024 and for that please follow these steps carefully:
1# Start by visiting the official Saudi government website. Additionally, you can explore available Saudi scholarships at KSA universities by visiting their respective websites. I have already provided links to all KSA universities above. Make sure to note their admission application deadlines and the range of subjects and degrees they offer. This will be your initial step.
#2 Keep in mind that different Saudi universities may have varying rules and application timelines.
3# Saudi scholarships are available for diploma, bachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D. programs, covering a wide range of subjects including media sciences, political science, engineering, computer science, Arabic/Islamic studies, law, agriculture, economics, and administration.
#4 It’s important to note that most KSA universities only allocate 5% of their slots for international students on KSA government scholarships. However, Princess Noor Binte Abdul Rehman University in Riyadh accepts 8%, and Jamia Islamia Madinah Munawara is exceptional, accepting 85% of international students on scholarships.
5# Once you submit your KSA scholarship application, the university will forward it to the Saudi Ministry of Education for their final approval to grant you the KSA government scholarship.
