Qatar Foundation offers need-based financial assistance through the Hamad Bin Khalifa Financial Aid Program to help students meet the financial obligations of their universities. Financial aid given to students through this program is in the form of loans.
In exchange for the loans awarded, students will be expected upon graduation to repay the full amount of the loan according to a repayment plan or to participate in a paid service program at an organization in Qatar approved by Qatar Foundation.
The Financial Aid Committee at Qatar Foundation will determine financial need according to a uniform method of need analysis. We strive to maintain fair and equitable financial aid policies and practices that ensure equal access for all students who have been admitted to an Education City university.
Financial aid recipients will go through an annual re-evaluation process. This will involve completing supplementary forms and providing updates on previously submitted documents. Students will also be assigned to meet periodically with a financial aid representative from the Education Division of Qatar Foundation.
