Empowering Human Scientific Capacities, Inspiring the Youth

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) and the launch of the Entaliq Graduate Scholarship Program confirm the status of the UAE as a spacefaring nation and a pioneer in Space Science from hereon. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, and Ruler of Dubai, envisions a diversified and knowledge-based economy for the UAE brought about by the burgeoning space industry. The vision: to create highly skilled jobs in the space sector for a growing youth population.

This is the first step the UAE is taking on the Emiratis’ seven-year journey to Mars, through the MBRSC. The Mars Mission, a national pride for the UAE, is the first space exploration journey by an Arab – Islamic country. As the Space Centre promotes local space technology to boost economic productivity and knowledge creation, the Graduate Scholarships Program focuses on nurturing scientific minds and “moulding the next generation of brilliant Emirati Space Scientists and Engineers”.

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre provides funds for industrial, scientific and research facilities, as well as diverse research opportunities in the UAE, and will award scholarships to deserving students
