Do you have the potential to be a future leader and a desire to study in the UK?

The Scholarships, which are funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, operates in 118 countries worldwide, and this year will support about 600 students. The programme has been running in Egypt since 1986, and in that time over one thousand of the brightest young Egyptians have benefited from a year’s study in the United Kingdom.

Scholarships are awarded to exceptional individuals with leadership potential. Awards are typically for a one-year Master’s degree, in any subject and at any UK university. The Scholarships provide a unique opportunity for leaders of the future to build a global network of continuing professional significance and also to establish social, cultural, academic or commercial partnerships with the UK.
