WISE is a four-week community-based internship program for children of KAUST residents.  Applications are open to TKS and out-of-kingdom high school students who are currently in Grades 10-12. The program is also open to dependent undergraduate University students (aged 25 and under).

From creating a video about life in the community, to study the potential of ether-based bio-fuels, WISE interns have the opportunity to gain a wealth of experience within our university and our community.  83 students successfully completed the program in 2019, which included on the job training and mentorship, optional training such as First Aid, and a bowling social event, organized by two of our WISE Interns.
