who we are

Over the last decade, Qatar has undertaken significant reformation and modernization in an effort to build an educational system that puts quality educations at its core. As Qatar’s official development agency, Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) places education at the forefront of its priorities as it is one of the most important sectors that serves a vital role in a community’s and a nation’s sustainable development, resilience, and peace building.

His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar affirmed that “Economic development cannot be achieved in the long run without human development”. In this context, QFFD continues to take great strides in education as it is an essential aspect of human development by providing an avenue for individuals from developing countries to effectively achieve social and economic stability.

Through the developmental aid projects that we contribute to, we witness firsthand how education is critical to ensuring social equity, supporting economic sustainability, combatting climate change, and promoting peace and security for all. Therefore, we are proud to have established the Qatar Scholarships program to provide access to quality education to learners and future leaders around the world. The initiative strives to reduce disparity and inequity in education by creating lifelong learning opportunities at leading universities. Qatar Scholarships offers its learners a chance to be a part of a rich cultural environment, network with experts, and gain skills through a range of programs and vocational training. The programs equip learners with the necessary tools to become economically sustainable and be part of resilient solutions to the interconnected global challenges that the nations and communities are facing.

We encourage you to take this opportunity to align with our values, share our mission and become an active promoter of peaceful, inclusive, just, and sustainable societies.

Our Students Come From All Over The World

Qatar Scholarships provides hundreds of scholarships annually. Award recipients are selected based on rigorous eligibility criteria including academic merit, financial need and demographics.

Student Testimonials

I decided to apply for a Qatar scholarship as it is a great opportunity for me as a student to have access to the quality education taught at Lusail University and also, it is an opportunity for me to discover another country and another culture other than my own.

This scholarship means that I have made an impact on my community and I will continue to leave a path wherever I go in life.

I have chosen the Executive Master in Development Policies and Practices (DPP) because its design is most attractive for professionals with a technical background like mine. In addition, the reputation of the Geneva Graduate Institute in such topics within the global and international context gave me the desire to be part of it.

Qatar feels like one of the most diverse, student friendly cities in the world. Meeting fellow students from different parts of the globe enhanced my educational experience and allowed me to thrive in our increasingly multi-cultural world.

Doha Institute is a place full of people with passion for what they are doing. I am inspired by this place and its people.
