Young Emiratis are invited to apply for a coveted position who will carry the pride of the nation and be the first ever Emirati astronaut to go into space; if you're truly dedicated you can apply now.
Our ambitious goals are fuelled by dedicated people, who support us until, without hesitation or scepticism, we succeed.

The 'most competitive' applicants will be accepted
However, if you don't make it, HH Sheikh Mohammed notes that every Emirati contributes to the future of the UAE whether on land or in the skies.
The most competitive applicants will be selected to be ambassadors for the UAE in space exploration. However, every single Emirati will contribute in his or her own way to the future of the UAE, whether it’s on land, or in the skies.— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) December 6, 2017
