In accordance to the Ministry of Higher Education decision, each English language program should only have a maximum total of 50 Kuwaiti students at any given time.

We strongly suggest that students apply to several English language programs to have other options in case their preferred school has reached maximum capacity.

The Cultural Office of the Kuwait Embassy seeks to promote the higher education plans and strategies of the Kuwaiti government by placing its scholars in quality programs, and preparing them for the market needs of the country. In addition, the Office aims to establish and strengthen its links with American educators and institutions of higher learning for the benefit of Kuwait. Furthermore, the Cultural Office is committed to establishing linkages and cooperative endeavors to enhance cross-cultural understanding between Kuwait and American Society at large.

Beginning in the 1950's the Kuwait Cultural Office has served the needs of Kuwaiti students pursuing higher education in the United States and Canada. Through its staff of professional educators, the Office administers the scholarship programs of Kuwait government agencies, private institutions and charitable foundations:
