Muscat: The Directorate General of Scholarships at the Ministry of Higher Education will offer a number of scholarships and grants for undergraduate programmes at the institutions of higher education in the Sultanate from October 21 to October 31 through the Admission Centre.
Applications are invited from graduates of secondary schools or equivalent in the year 2006/2007 up to 2011/2012.
Hamad bin Hamoud Al Balushi, Director General of Scholarships, said these grants and scholarships are awarded because some seats from the internal scholarships stream are not filled due to withdrawals and study-interruptions.
On receiving instructions from officials at the ministry, the previous years' graduates are allowed to apply for these scholarships.
The ministry is keen to encourage students wishing to pursue their higher studies.
