NYUAD Announces Recipients of 2015 Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Scholarship for Outstanding High School Students

Thirty-four high-achieving secondary school students have been selected to participate in the NYU Abu Dhabi Summer Academy, a rigorous 18-month enrichment program, as recipients of the 2015 Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Scholarship for Outstanding High School Students. Now in its fifth year, the program offers an immersive educational experience that prepares Abu Dhabi-based Emirati students for entry into top-tier English-language universities throughout the world, including NYU Abu Dhabi.

The students were selected based on consideration of their academic achievement, English-language comprehension, motivation to attend college, leadership and interpersonal skills, and potential for growth and improvement.

The program curriculum focuses on the development of critical thinking, writing, and discussion in English; quantitative reasoning; standardized test preparation; public speaking; and leadership.

Taking place during the two summers following the 10th and 11th grades and including three semesters of online and in-person instruction throughout the academic year, the Summer Academy introduces students to the academic standards, norms, and values appropriate to the culture of leading international higher education institutions, in addition to providing college admission counseling. This comprehensive educational experience is supported both in the classroom and through extracurricular activities at NYUAD, NYU New York, and NYU Florence.
