These scholarships are intended for Moroccan and foreign students holding Master's degrees or equivalent diplomas, recognized by the Ministry of National Education, Professional Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research.
This program aims to provide training to PhDs in priority research areas defined by the International University of Rabat as part of two postgraduate courses accredited by the Ministry of National Education, Professional Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research:
  • PhD in Science, Technology and Engineering ( STE )

The monthly PhD scholarships amount to MAD 8,000. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic excellence, motivation and ability to meet the requirements for the preparation of a full-time doctoral thesis.
