Abstract: This chapter provides an historical background of the student scholarship programmes in Saudi Arabia and in particular, critically assesses the development of the King Abdullah Scholarship Program. It describes the nature and context of policy reform, including the geopolitical constraints, and analyses the challenges that Saudi students confront when studying outside the country. Particular emphasis is placed on the need for a greater level of cooperation between the Saudi Ministry of Higher Education and the countries and international institutions where Saudi scholarship-sponsored students study.
