Scholarship Program for Pakistani Students

Under the scholarship program, Pakistani students will be enrolled in Diploma, Bachelor, Master, and PhD programs in twenty-five universities across the Kingdom.

Both categories of students, those who are in Pakistan or legally staying in the Kingdom, can apply for the scholarships.

The program covered return tickets, tuition fees, lodging facilities, a 3-month furnishing allowance for married students, medical care, and a monthly stipend of between 850 and 900 riyals.

Back in October this year, Australia’s University of Wollongong also extended its most prestigious Vice-Chancellor’s Leadership Scholarship for Pakistan.

The Pakistan High Commission said that for the first time, an Australian university has offered such a scholarship opportunity for Pakistan.
