The Al Qasimi Foundation grants are ideal for individuals with existing research interests in the GCC and Middle East region related to education, arts and culture, urban planning and community development, or public health. The Foundation would also consider submissions related to philanthropy in the region. While Ras Al Khaimah/United Arab Emirates (UAE) must be a significant site for data collection and analysis, comparative studies are welcome and encouraged. Scholars associated with an accredited higher education institution anywhere in the world are eligible to apply, and awards cover expenses associated with conducting field research in the UAE.
Deadline for submission: 1 March 2018
