This private merit-based scholarship program was established in 2000 by Orascom Construction, as part of their commitment to promoting excellence and achievement, with the aim of enhancing Egypt's economic competitiveness.

The history of Orascom Construction traces back to 1950 when Eng. Onsi Sawiris founded a construction company in Upper Egypt. Over the years, the company grew into one of Egypt's largest general contractors, but it was later nationalized in 1961 under President Nasser. Not deterred, Eng. Sawiris continued his construction career in Libya, only to return to Egypt in 1976 and establish Orascom as a general contracting and trading company. Through partnerships with international companies, Eng. Sawiris built Orascom into a leading private sector contractor in Egypt.

Driven by the vision to promote excellence and achievement, Orascom launched the Onsi Sawiris Program in 2000 to invest in educational initiatives that benefit the communities they work in. The Onsi Sawiris Scholarship program provides full tuition scholarships to Egyptian undergraduate students aiming to pursue their Bachelor's degrees in fields that will contribute to Egypt's economic prosperity.
