Graduate Degree Scholarship - OLSP at ASU

A great opportunity to earn a master's degree online from a highly reputable U.S. university

Are you looking for scholarship opportunities to pursue your master's degree in a STEM-related, Education, or Healthcare field next starting in Fall 2020? The Al Ghurair Open Learning Scholars Program (OLSP) is now receiving applications from bright Arab students for over 30 online master's degree programs at Arizona State University (ASU). 

The Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education is a privately-funded philanthropic initiative based in Dubai, which aims to support underserved, high-achieving Arab youth by providing access to educational opportunities. OLSP is offering full scholarships to enroll in one of more than 30 online master's degrees at Arizona State University (ASU), which has been consistently ranked the United States' most innovative university. The funded programs are in the fields of engineering, technology, health, education, and more that are not readily available in the region. 

If you win the OLSP scholarship, you will receive:

  1. A full scholarship at ASU, which covers all tuition and fees for one of the approved online master's degrees;
  2. Access to a network of Al Ghurair Scholars in your program;
  3. Personalized academic advising, career counseling, and mentorship through ASU; and,
  4. Opportunities to be featured in program communications including their website and social media.

This opportunity is not available to everyone. To be eligible, you must:

  • Be a citizen of an Arab country, without citizenship to a non-Arab country;
  • Have a 3.0 GPA or 85% grade average;
  • Be 29 years old or younger (anyone 30 years old or older is not eligible);
  • Be able to demonstrate financial need;
  • Have completed your undergraduate degree, but not yet completed a master's degree; and
