Dubai: The Emirates Group has partnered with the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Dubai to launch a scholarship program for Emirati high-school graduates.

The four-year programme aims to attract talented individuals to the fields of aviation and information technology, focusing on areas like artificial intelligence, robotics, and renewable energy.

Students will have the opportunity to intern at the Emirates Group during their studies and potentially secure permanent positions after graduation.

This partnership is part of the Emirates Group’s Rehlaty strategy to support and develop UAE Nationals through scholarships, development programs, and collaborations with educational institutions.

Other fully sponsored scholarships specifically designed for UAE Nationals to complete their undergraduate degrees or obtain special licenses include programmes for national cadet pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers, technologists, and specialisations in aviation management and finance.
