Saudi Arabia to grant more scholarships when needed

The Saudi minister of higher education has denied claims that the number of scholarships under the King Abdullah Scholarship Programme is low, saying "these numbers are not modest when compared with the countries that experience economic growth similar to the kingdom's," Arab News has reported. The number of Saudis studying under scholarships at premier international universities across the world is currently more than 150,000, Khaled Al-Anqari said. "The current number of students has increased from the previous planned number, and I do not think that there is anything that prevents us from increasing the amount of scholarships if the need arises," he said.
