NC State has hosted foundation year programs for select recipients of the KAUST Gifted Student Program (KGSP). The KGSP is an invitation-only scholarship that selects students from the top 3 percent of Saudi high school graduates in science and math, and supports them as they earn bachelor’s degrees at U.S. institutions prior to pursuing advanced degrees at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).
KAUST Students Excel at NC State
Seventeen students completed the rigorous year-long program at NC State that included courses in English, math, science, writing and American culture.
Six of these students will remain at NC State to begin degree programs in the fall and the others will go on to top-tier institutions across the country.
