Since its establishment, the Qalaa Holdings Scholarship Foundation (QHSF) has granted 138 Egyptian students full scholarships to pursue master’s-level studies in the US and Europe. The scholarships are targeted at top-tier universities but are awarded on the condition that the scholars return to Egypt to work in their chosen field following the completion of their studies.

On 10 June the Ninth Annual class of scholarship recipients was announced in a ceremony attended by the Minister of Social Solidarity HE Ghada Waly.

The 17 selected students will be studying social sciences, medicine & life sciences, computer sciences, engineering, natural sciences, architecture and arts in the US, the UK, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden and Norway.

Qalaa Holdings founded the QHSF in 2007. Every year the foundation grants scholarships to 15-20 students and has so far awarded 138 to talented young Egyptian men and women to study in a wide variety of disciplines including filmmaking, anthropology, arts, business, engineering, architecture, nanotechnology, environmental development and political and economic development.
