Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission - The Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission to the United States
Organized by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Higher Education, the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM) to the United States (US) continues to help students gain education through scholarship opportunities and a number of resources that contribute to student success. SACM, which is a component of the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, is located at 8500 Hilltop Road, Fairfax, Virginia. A comprehensive guide to what the organization has to offer students from Saudi Arabia is available at www.sacm.org.
Students who receive a government-funded scholarship to study in the United States will find an e-services page on the SACM website, complete with a student portal that consolidates information into one easily accessible location. Additionally, the website provides an e-library and has compiled important information for students, so that they can make informed decisions about where to pursue education.
In order to serve the best interests of those who participate in its program, SACM, through its 8500 Hilltop Road office, has established Saudi student clubs in universities across the United States. By operating student clubs in the US, SACM provides students on scholarships with many unique opportunities to participate in activities such as community events, university programs, and sports, among other social engagements. Encouraging students to participate in their local clubs, SACM promotes the belief that its students are ambassadors of their home country and should do everything they can to promote both Saudi history and its modern-day strengths.
Established over 60 years ago, the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission has helped thousands of students achieve their educational goals. As a result of the organization’s incredible growth, SACM chose to relocate its headquarters in order to accommodate the needs of over 13,000 students. By operating from Fairfax, Virginia, SACM is able to take advantage of its proximity to Washington, D.C. and enjoys ease of communication with Saudi’s Ministry of Higher Education.
