The Pakistan Scottish Scholarship Scheme is a grant funded by the Scottish Government, specifically in order to create opportunities for young women in Pakistan to be able to pursue higher education at the post-graduate level. The scheme aims to facilitate and provide assistance to young women from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue a Masters’ degree in Pakistani universities.
The scheme has been initiated in response to the identified need of young women in the country who are deprived of the resources and opportunities to pursue and continue their education, and as a consequence to enable them to contribute positively to their community and society.
The British Council Pakistan will administer the Pakistan Scottish Scholarship Scheme in Pakistan and coordinate with the selected scholars for their tuition fee, subsistence and related issues.
The Pakistan Scottish Scholarship Scheme will facilitate the award-holders with the following incentives:
• Tuition fee for the Masters courses
• University hostel costs
• Subsistence to the award-holder
• Travel to and from home to the university, three times in a year
