Al Futtaim Education Foundation, in line with the UAE Centennial Vision 2071, is committed to a foresight and future-facing approach to education.
As part of its Education Futures initiative, Al Futtaim Education Foundation, offers a scholarship-based, supplemental educational programme powered by Awecademy, an award-winning organisation partnered with AREA2071 (a Dubai Future Foundation and UAE Prime Minister’s Office initiative). Awecademy, in partnership with Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), is also a part of Dubai Future Accelerators. Eligibility for the scholarship is not linked to academic performance and/or CAT scores or the like. Students with commitment to, and enthusiasm for, the programme are welcome to apply and go through the screening process irrespective of their academic performance level at school.
Al Futtaim Education Foundation aims, through collaboration with Awecademy, to ensure that students are offered opportunities to develop and/or enhance their future fluencies through a reflective, wisdom-based and future-focused educational provision developed by thought leaders in science, social science, technology/innovation and business and industry.
Al Futtaim Education Foundation will host the programme at its state-of-the-art Innovation Hub, located at Festival Office Tower, in order to allow participating students to experience an authentic business space where real-life corporate decisions are made.
