About Pacific Prime Dubai’s 2018 scholarship

One of our founding beliefs at Pacific Prime is that education is an essential part in the shaping of tomorrow’s leaders. Unfortunately, education is becoming increasingly expensive, a fact we want to try to offset with this scholarship.

Now in its second year across the company, the Pacific Prime scholarship - available to high school and undergraduate students studying in Dubai - awards a deserving student with USD 1,000 to help offset the cost of education.
