These scholarships offer opportunities for undergraduate, master’s, and PhD studies at Moroccan Public Institutions of Higher Education.

Applicants are required to provide valid scores in either the HAT (Higher Education Aptitude Test) or USAT (Undergraduate Studies Admission Test). The criteria for nomination differ based on the level of study. HAT scores are required for master’s and PhD programs, while USAT scores are necessary for bachelor’s programs. However, HEC reserves the right to modify these criteria.

For undergraduate programs, a minimum of 12 years of education (equivalent to FSC/A-level) is required, with applicants being under the age of 23. For master’s programs, a minimum of 16 years of education in relevant fields is necessary, and for PhD programs, a minimum of 18 years of education in the relevant field is required.

Available Programs

The Moroccan Government is offering scholarships for programs in various fields, including Medical Studies, Paramedical Science, Commercial and Management Science, Engineering and Technological Science, Agronomic and Veterinary Science, and Architecture.
