The aim is to contribute to boosting Dubai’s human capital through various higher education platforms, thereby helping to prepare a futuristic workforce while ensuring that Dubai’s promising students receive the most advanced education and occupational training.

The Crown Prince said: “Investing in Emirati higher education and equipping our youth with knowledge is critical to building and sustaining an informed society. The Government of Dubai is unwaveringly committed to providing the necessary resources to empower the best students , nurturing them to become competent and influential Future Leaders armed with advanced skills to enrich sectors in the emirate and write new chapters in Dubai’s development journey. This initiative recognizes students who pursue academic achievements and personal aspirations, helping them achieve his objectives”.

Sheikh Hamdan highlighted the important role of high-achieving and ambitious students in Dubai’s Social Agenda 33 mission, expressing confidence in their ability to shape Dubai’s future. He has been recognizing the top 25 high school students in Dubai for the past two academic years.

Students who have been awarded the recognition have been selected from a wide range of schools and curricula in Dubai, including Ministry of Education, British and American curricula, as well as the International Baccalaureate. The new program will complement existing scholarships by offering 75 additional scholarships, benefiting 100 outstanding students annually.

Aligned with Dubai Social Agenda 33, the Hamdan bin Mohammed Academic Scholarship Program contributes to achieving two main strategic objectives. Firstly, it aims to position Dubai among the top 10 cities in terms of quality of education globally by 2033. The strategically designed program will contribute significantly to Dubai’s future knowledge-based economy by cultivating exceptional future leaders who drive innovation in a variety of sectors.

Additionally, the program is designed to provide students with scholarships to prestigious international universities for specialized studies that are compatible with the needs of Dubai’s economy.
