In 1994, Community Jameel established the Abdul Latif Jameel-Toyota Endowed Scholarship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to provide financial support for undergraduate students from more than 20 countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia.

The scholarship is named in honour of the late Abdul Latif Jameel, founder of the Abdul Latif Jameel business, and of the Toyota Motor Corporation, in recognition of the longstanding friendship and partnership between those two organisations.

The Jameel-Toyota Scholarship at MIT embodies the principles of Community Jameel to help young people from the Middle East, North Africa and beyond to achieve their potential at one of the world’s leading academic institutions.

Since its establishment, the Jameel-Toyota Scholarship has supported over 160 MIT students, many of whom have gone on to establish successful businesses, and to give back to their communities with innovative, pro-social initiatives. The Jameel-Toyota Scholarship is administered by MIT and is open to eligible candidates from the catchment countries via the MIT Student Financial Services online portal: sfs.mit.edu
