Qatar University supports a wide variety of scholarships to approximately 400 recipients each academic year in order to attract highly qualified students. While the vast majority of academic scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit and scholarly achievement, Qatar University also provides other scholarships that also consider financial need. All scholarships cover the cost of tuition fees while the benefits of some scholarships may also include one or more of the following benefits: free accommodation in university dormitories, transportation to and from the University, and a yearly airfare ticket to the home country for students who are not residents of Qatar.
Non-degree applicants, visiting students and applicants seeking a second bachelor's degree are not eligible for academic scholarships offered at the undergraduate level. Graduate studies (Master's and PhD) applicants may refer to the VPCAO Scholarships Office for further details about available scholarships.
