There are 4 campuses at the University of Abu Dhabi. You can select any campus for a scholarship in Dubai. The scholarship application process begins after a student is formally admitted to ADU and is given a unique student identification number. This identification number is used to log in securely to a university account that has a financial aid section and scholarships.
Because the student’s information, including academic records, has already been processed by the university at the time of admission, all scholarships for which the student is eligible will appear on the account page.
