The Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, has disclosed a rewards system to honour the brightest high school students of the emirates.
Sheikh Hamdan stated that Emiratis and residents at both private and public schools would be in line for recognition under new plans to empower future generations.
The scheme will further include financial prizes for over 50 top high school students and also academic sponsorships and scholarships for students of the UAE at universities at home and abroad.

The recent strategy is for the Ministry of Education, British, American and International Baccalaureate curriculums.
The first batch of excellent performing students will be given their rewards in September.
