For Students

We encourage Kuwaiti students and assist them in developing their talents and achieving their ambitions in the scientific field through providing them with diverse funding opportunities including scholarships and internships outside Kuwait.

KFAS supports capacity building of Kuwait’s youth by providing fresh high achieving graduates with fellowships, internships and funded training opportunities outside Kuwait.

Professional Development Initiative (PDI)

In 2015, the Professional Development Initiative (PDI) was launched in a partnership between KFAS and the National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC). Fully funded by KFAS, the aim of this program is to build U.S.-Kuwait business and capacity-building, through one‐year professional fellowships in the U.S. The Kuwaiti PDI fellows gain value with on-the-job experience in a U.S. professional work environment that they can bring home to Kuwait once their year is potentially completed with their host company.
