The Ministry of Education and Higher Education announced that 750 students have so far applied for scholarships locally and abroad.

Director of Admissions and Registration at the Department of Scholarships Saleh Al Muftah said in a press statement on Tuesday that the ministry's scholarships are witnessing increased turnout by students wishing to study international relations, law and international affairs in languages other than English, such as Italian and French.

Al Muftah pointed out that the ministry provided students with the opportunity to apply for all scholarship programs locally and abroad through the Student Portal, in addition to the Academic Bridge Program (ABP) and the Amiri Scholarship Program.

He added that the implementation of the government scholarship program comes in response to the directives of the wise leadership that Qatari youth should go to all specialties within the framework of the State's efforts to enable them to work in all sectors through the implementation of scholarship plans and the provision of appointments, training and development opportunities. The government scholarship program seeks to provide specialized Qataris to meet the needs of the labor market.

Since the launch of the program in 2015, the total number of scholarships in the government scholarship program has reached 4,171 students who are currently enrolled in their studies.

The Ministries of Education and Higher Education and the Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs recently announced at a press conference the government scholarship plan and general conditions for the 2019-2020 academic year, and the role of each in their implementation.

They also identified the target specialties within the framework of the government scholarship plan for the 2019-2020 academic year and the number of specialization allocated to the bachelor's degree, specialized diplomas and other specializations required by the State and the labor market.

Among the main specialties are Supply Chain Management, Airport Management, Aviation Management, Transport Logistics Management, Airport Security, Aviation Security, Medicine, Assistant Medicine, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, Statistics and Vital Statistics, Veterinary Medicine, Education (teachers), Computer and Information Science, and Law in Spanish, German, Italian, Turkish, Russian, French and Japanese languages, as well as international relations in the same languages, in addition to languages, translation and engineering.

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education, in accordance with the scholarship plan, directs and guides the students, while the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs prepares the general policy for scholarships and coordinates with the government agencies to prepare their scholarship plans in light of their needs and then send them to the Ministry of Education.
