More education is always good news.

Everyone has an equal chance to get the scholarship
-If you are a graduate from High School you need 90%+ and  80%+ in the general aptitude and 80%+ in the Achievement test ( Saudis have many tests after high school, and after university)
- If you are a graduate from University you need 3.75 out of 5 or 80/100
- If you have a master's degree and you want to study PhD your average must be at least "very good"
and there is general terms like :
- Full-time to study. doesn't work for the government (the government has its own scholarship program)

so far it's like more then 200 thousand got the scholarship I think the goal is half a million (out of 18 million citizens!).In 2012 Saudi Arabia has allocated 26% of the budget for education . 80% of faculty members in the Saudi universities received high education in the best universities in the world.
This is all part of the plan of "the knowledge society by 2022".

There are many things happening now maybe I write an article about changing in Saudi Arabia
