The UAEU established the National Faculty Recruitment and Development Office, which
provides scholarships to exceptional national candidates who have a strong desire
to pursue higher education and work in academia. The scholarships provide a generous
monthly salary and fully cover education, travel and health insurance costs throughout
their masters and PhD studies. Upon the completion of the PhD studies, the candidate
will join the University as an assistant professor.
We urge faculty members to identify top senior student, whom they believe would be
a suitable candidate in terms of grades, caliber, moral standing, and stamina for
higher education and to discuss the student's credentials with both the department
chair and the TA Office so that we can invite him/her for an interview as soon as
The applicant should be a UAE national, graduate of an accredited university, with
a major and overall GPA of 3.5, and have IELTS with score 7 or TOFEL IBT 95.
National Faculty Support Program:
The National Faculty Support Program (NFSP) was developed to provide an additional
opportunity for national faculty members to enhance their professional development
within the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU). The program gives the national
faculty members the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops and training courses
held by recognized academic associations.
