Fresh Graduate Scholarships

PDO scholarship schemes are considered to be one of the best development schemes offered to Omani graduates since the early 1980s.
Overview

The schemes have educated more than 2000 graduates across all the levels of Education from Diplomas to PhDs. Many have successfully reached top management positions due to the strength of the schemes and the foundation they offer for a successful career.

PDO offers two schemes to Omani fresh graduates: the Undergraduate Overseas Scholarship Scheme and the Postgraduate Overseas Scholarship Scheme.
