Ebrahim Khaled Balghunaim Scholarship 

In memory of Ebrahim Balghunaim (16th December 1985 to 28th June 2022)

Ebrahim Khaled Balghunaim was a student at King Faisal School for many happy years, graduating in 2003, being a member of the first cohort to complete a Grade 1 to Grade 12 journey through the school. After graduating from KFS as Valour Dictorian, Ebrahim attended MIT with similar levels of achievement and academic scholarship. 

Following his premature passing at a young age, a scholarship programme has been established in his name. Designed to support students who would benefit from a King Faisal School education, the scholarship aims to provide financial aid to students who would otherwise be unable to attend a fee-paying school.
