Dubai Government is committed to creating a national cadre of highly qualified youth who can continue the progress of the country. Many Dubai universities offer scholarships and grants to recognize leadership potential and outstanding academic achievements. Both academic and sports scholarship programs are accessible and available to students based on certain criteria and merit requirements.
For example, American University in Dubai (AUD) in partnership with Du is offering eligible Emiratis Bachelor's and Master's degree scholarships. Students with disabilities or financially needy are invited to apply.
Students working part-time in Dubai: Students on university sponsorship can legally work part-time upon receiving a permit from the Ministry of Labour under a 2011 decree issued as part of the UAE Labour Law. The part-time work permit regulation is aimed at protecting student rights to stop employers exploiting them.
