ABQ Announces Scholarships Programme for New School Year
In ABQ’s ongoing quest to offer quality education and to reward academic excellence, Oman’s leading K-12 operator is offering 12 academic scholarships for the 2023-2024 school year at any of their three premium international schools (ABQ Azzan Bin Qais in Madinat Sultan Qaboos, ABQ Seeb and ABQ Sohar).
The scholarships will be awarded to students whose academic performance throughout the year demonstrated remarkable consistency at the highest level of achievement.
ABQ Education Group CEO, Mr Humayun Kabir, explained, “Education is the foundation of success, but the cost of tuition, and other educational expenses can add up quickly, making it difficult for many families to afford excellent education. However, ABQ is committed to helping twelve students pursue their academic dreams by offering a range of scholarships for the 2023-2024 academic year.”
ABQ is currently accepting online applications for the scholarship programme and entries close on Monday, 15 May 2023,

Each scholarship is valid for two academic years, except for those given for Grade 12, which are one-year
