The Cultural Office at the Embassy of the Kingdom of Bahrain in Washington, D.C. is located inside the embassy’s building and reports to the Directorate of Scholarships and Cultural divisions at the Ministry of Education and other governmental agencies in the kingdom who sponsor Bahraini students in the United States . We regularly report to these agencies on the students’ academic progress, achievements and requests while facilitating communications between the American universities and their counterparts in the kingdom. The Cultural Office carries out financial obligations to students under scholarship, facilitating payments for tuitions, healthcare and allowances as well as looking after their educational, cultural and social welfare while studying in the US.
The Cultural Office acts as a conduit for information on the civilization and culture of the Kingdom of Bahrain. It is also responsible for facilitating exchanges of scientific and technological expertise between Bahraini institutions and their American counterparts.
It would be advisable for Bahraini students seeking scholarships to approach the Ministry of Education directly while in Bahrain as well as other sponsoring bodies after finishing high school.
There also exists a plethora of scholarships within the United States and the scholarships available will vary by institution. Even within an institution, scholarships will often vary each year.
Therefore, it would be advisable for Bahraini students seeking scholarships to identify the institutions they are interested in attending and contacting the Financial Aid office at each institution directly. The Financial Aid office maintain information on all available scholarships at their respective institution and would be able to offer unique insight into the criteria required to qualify for and receive a given scholarship.
