The National Ambassadors Program ‘Estedad’ – an initiative of the UAE Ministry of Education – aims to enrich the capabilities of students in UAE high schools and prepare them to excel academically, gain more insights in entrepreneurship and scientific research.
Khalifa University participates in the program by offering select high school students an opportunity to take one of three tracks, including ‘enrichment,’ ‘innovation and entrepreneurship,’ and ‘scientific research.’ Each of the tracks lasts for two-weeks and is led by a Khalifa University expert. Each track has 25 students from Grade 11 and 12, of which 20 are UAE nationals. Students were selected on the basis of their academic and behavioral performance in the school’s transcript and their score in National Ambassador Program entry assessments.
