The World Student Scholarship Education Program was inspired by the King Abdullah Scholarship Program (KASP) in Saudi Arabia. During the two-day event, 100 heads of scholarships and key decision makers from the public, private and government sectors are invited to engage in one-to-one meetings with educational providers and suppliers, from different organizations, institutions, and companies. It is an exclusive platform for delegates to create valuable contacts, generate new business, develop partnerships and discuss future scholarship positions.

The first WSSEP was organized by Gulf Conferences Ltd and took place on the 16th and 17th of November 2015 in London. It hosted participants from all over the world to discuss the importance of scholarships, particularly in GCC countries. Held in Abu Dhabi, the second event was under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, head of the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Culture, Youth, and Social Development. Over 250 delegates from 20 different countries attended almost 2000 pre-scheduled one­-to-­one meetings in two days.

Delegates can request up to 30 one-to-one meetings via a meeting scheduling system. Each appointment lasts approximately 25-minutes. The system enables delegates to review all attendees, request meetings, examine programs offered by heads of scholarship and key decision makers as well as send direct messages to those they wish to meet.
