The program provides scholarships for students to join an accredited university in the Kingdom of Bahrain, as well as offering many benefits including financial incentives, workshops and opportunities within the public and private sectors. Students can also register in various workshops to develop the required skills and enhance self-confidence when dealing with practical situations. This comes in line with the Foundation’s vision of empowering the youth with the necessary skills and expertise that qualify them into successfully entering the labor market and creating a conscious and educated generation capable of taking on responsibility and facing challenges effectively for a brighter and more developed future.
