The Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the King Abdulaziz Foundation, launched Grant (1139) for Foundation Day last year in 2023. The grant aimed to support research and studies related to the history of the establishment of the Saudi state by Imam Mohammed bin Saud – may Allah have mercy on him – in 1139 H / 1727 CE.

At the time, 94 researchers applied for the grant, with 15 research abstracts passing the initial screening. Eight researchers were awarded the grant for topics related to Foundation Day. These researchers worked on the research and successfully completed it, leading to the publication of their findings in a book titled “Studies in History and Culture” as a culmination of their efforts.
