The Executive Board of Harvard Model Congress Dubai is pleased to announce the establishment of a need-based Financial Aid Initiative in support of outstanding delegates for whom cost would be a barrier of attendance to the HMC Dubai 2019 conference. 

Our new Financial Aid Initiative is aimed at providing students from all socioeconomic backgrounds with a means to participate in our conference. It is our hope that this need-based program will broaden HMC Dubai's educational reach, and give deserving students whom would otherwise not be able to participate the opportunity to enjoy the HMC Dubai experience.

If you are a student who does not have the financial means to attend HMC Dubai but would like to be considered for a financial aid grant, please submit the application linked below. Because the Initiative is still in its pilot phase, there will be a limited number of financial aid grants available to interested students. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so we recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible.  

Each financial aid grant be a maximum of $290, and will go towards covering the delegate fee of attending HMC Dubai.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Director of Outreach and Financial Aid, Michael Wornow, at


Financial aid will only be considered for high school students that (1) plan on attending the 2019 HMC Dubai conference and (2) have demonstrated financial need. These grants are intended to make the HMC Dubai experience accessible to students of all socioeconomic backgrounds and reduce financial barriers to participation.
