Postgraduate Research Scholarship Scheme (PRSS) AA & AD Campuses



Parallel to launching the Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSPS) program, the College of Pharmacy (CoPh-AAU) adopted a scholarship scheme (PRSS) to attract and employ distinguished BPharm (Bachelor of Pharmacy) graduates, offering them an excellent opportunity to pursue their postgraduate study in the Drug Discovery, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, and Drug Formulation fields. This dual-faceted scheme (Scholarship-Job), which is open for AAU (Al Ain University) and non-AAU graduates, offers the winners a fully-funded postgraduate scholarship (tuition waiver) while working at the College of Pharmacy as partially-paid Research Assistants and/or Lab Supervisors.
