The Oxford-Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Graduate Scholarship, launched in 2016 as part of a partnership between the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) and Oxford University, is a collaborative effort between the two institutions to support aspiring students in the UAE and the Arab region to pursue higher education from the world’s most prestigious and top-ranked university.
