The King Abdullah Scholar Award is conferred upon outstanding doctoral students to support their continued research efforts.

As recipients of the most prestigious KAUST scholarship award, King Abdullah Scholars represent a new age of visionary researchers, those that will have a major impact on the future of science, engineering and IT and will be a driving force for global innovation. King Abdullah Scholars are a “young-scholars” version of KAUST’s King Abdullah Professors. The selected scholars will embody the highest level of academic and leadership potential and will represent the aspirations and values of KAUST at their home institutions.

The Award consists of generous funding for up to four years to continue the scholar’s research project, a living stipend and travel funds.

The scholars will serve as “Ambassadors” at global research and technical conferences and workshops. The King Abdullah Scholars will be invited to participate in joint research projects on the KAUST campus and to take an active role mentoring KAUST Discovery Scholarship recipients at joint enrichment workshops focused on leadership and academic excellence.

Upon completion of their doctoral degrees, KAUST may offer King Abdullah Scholars research and post-doctoral opportunities on the KAUST campus, thereby creating opportunities for exceptional, innovative researchers and professors that will advance the long-term vision and goals of KAUST.

King Abdullah Scholars are accepted by institutional nomination only.
