“I am very grateful to the MBI Al Jaber Foundation for giving me the life changing opportunity to live in one of the most cosmopolitan cities of the world and to study in one of its prestigious universities.”
(Fahmia Alfotih, MBI Al Jaber Foundation Alumni)
We know how to ensure people get the most from scholarships. The Foundation itself was borne of a scholarship scheme based at the London Middle East Institute (LMEI) at SOAS.
Our scope quickly expanded to include programmes at some of the best universities across the globe. Today we maintain trusted partnerships with University College London (UCL), the London School of Economics (LSE), University of Westminster, the American Universities of Beirut and Cairo, INSEAD in France and MODUL University in Vienna.
Applications are open to all Arab residents of the Middle East and North Africa who have an unconditional offer from a well respected university. What unites them is a desire to make a real difference – not only for themselves but for their community, country or region.
Our ever-expanding alumni body now reaches from Yemen to Morocco and includes practitioners, academics and entrepreneurs in fields ranging from management to technology and education to music. Many have gone on to become influential within their countries of origin through important posts in state and civil institutions, the United Nations, the IMF, NGOs, and other leading organisations.
Here are just a few examples of life-changing stories which we hope can prove an inspiration to others.
