We are pleased to announce that applications for the Scotland Pakistan Scholarship Scheme for Young Women and Girls 2022-23 are now open.
British Council in collaboration with the Scottish Government first launched this scheme in 2013 with the aim of promoting higher education amongst Pakistani women. The Scotland Pakistan Scholarship caters to women from financially disadvantaged backgrounds pursuing higher education and helps them achieve their educational ambitions and so far has supported over 1100 students.
These scholarships are offered to female students enrolled in master’s and bachelor’s programmes. They are being offered in the fields of education, agriculture and food security, sustainable energy, health sciences, and STEM engineering (STEM is only applicable at Master’s level), all areas of critical importance to Pakistan.
Administered directly by the British Council, this scholarship will facilitate award-holders with the following incentives:
- Tuition fees for bachelor’s or master’s courses in eligible fields
- University hostel costs (where applicable)
- Travel to and from home to university two times a year for students staying in on-campus hostels
