The Citadel Capital Scholarship Foundation

The application round for Spring 2014/2015 commenced on January 15th 2014. Citadel Capital Scholarship Foundation will unfortunately not be able to accept PhD applications this year. We will only be accepting Masters degree applications.

The Citadel Capital Scholarship Foundation was created in 2007, out of a strong will to contribute to national development through creating high caliber professionals to help enhance Egypt’s growth in all sectors. The Foundation is funded by an endowment from Citadel Capital to grant academic scholarships for talented and promising young Egyptian men and women to pursue master degrees and PhDs abroad in all fields of study.
