Welcome to AlThuraya Foundation


AlThuraya Foundation, a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organization based in Edinburgh, seeks to provide benefit by focusing on the provision of funding and mentoring of young scholars, promoting the advancement of education. The Foundation aims to focus its efforts to support and invest in education as a way to enhance promising yet underprivileged people and societies, starting with the Middle East North Africa Region, and hopefully extending its support on a global scale in due course. The Foundation wishes to facilitate positive change and development through granting hope and opportunity to outstanding young individuals, building and developing the MENA region's prospects through the highest levels of education in the world's most prestigious universities. AlThuraya Foundation scholars will be optimally positioned to acquire the requisite skills to effect positive change in their respective societies, the region, and the world. 


What We Offer


The lack of access to funds is one of the greatest impediments in pursuing higher education or even engaging in scientific scholarly research. Thus, AlThuraya Foundation’s commitment to tackle this issue takes center stage.


We have created a 3-tiered mentorship program for our students so they can make the best out of their respective programs. This will be in regards to developing their academic, social, and professional lives.
