These measures were taken after several concerns came to the surface from Saudi scholarship students in foreign countries, now they can all rest assured that the Kingdom will have their backs until they return safely to their hometown.

This decision of continuing the disbursement of financial aid will also include students who have been deprived from it, and those whose scholarships have ended but are still stuck in a foreign country.

This means that even if a student has already graduated but is unable to return to the Kingdom due to the current crisis, they will still get the financial aid they need to survive it.
