E-learning Scholarship Program

With the Egyptian E-Learning University

In 2010, the Sawiris Foundation began sponsoring a number of students to participate in a distance education program with the Egyptian E-Learning University. E-learning utilizes an Internet connection and a web browser to deliver 24-hour online learning. This is a new style of learning in which students are not required to attend scheduled classes and gives educational opportunities to learners who cannot reach a university campus. Students are supported as they study a variety of subjects, including Business Administration and Information Technology.

Scholarships target students, from different governorates. To date, 79 students have been awarded the Scholarship and are currently in the process of completing their studies. The Scholarship package includes full tuition fees.


  • Be Egyptian national, who is residing in Egypt.
  • Fulfill the EELU entry requirements for the program.
  • Demonstrate inability to finance studies from own resources.


The scholarship program is announced through EELU and applications are obtained directly from the university administration.
