International Scholarship Programme:
His Highness the Aga Khan created the International Scholarship Program (ISP) of the Aga Khan Foundation. The ISP seeks to assist talented, exceptional students from poor nations who lack other financial support in pursuing full-time postgraduate study at respectable higher education institutions of their choice.
- Excellent academic records.
- Genuine financial need. Financial assistance is provided according to the needs of students, but the ISP must be considered a resource of last resort.
- Applicants must demonstrate that they have explored and secured multiple sources of funding. The award funding need is determined individually, by deducting from the eligible student expenses, the total of other grants, loans (if any), parental contribution and student employment income.
- All students are encouraged to try to reduce the amount requested from the Foundation by applying to other sources of assistance as well.
- Admission to a reputable postgraduate institution of higher learning. The programme gives priority to Master’s degree courses but also considers applications for PhD studies. Local/regional universities and distance learning programmes are acceptable for ISP funding, if the quality of the courses is maintained.
- Strong professional experience, extracurricular achievements, volunteer contributions and leadership skills.
- Award winners are chosen following an annual application competition. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Kenya, Kyrgyz Republic, Madagascar, Mozambique, Pakistan, Portugal, Syria, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Uganda, and the United States are currently among the countries where the ISP is accessible.
- Candidates must be citizens of one of the aforementioned nations and be resident there. The appropriate country-based unit must be contacted by interested parties because applications are handled by local organizations.
- The ISP must be viewed as a lender of last resort, hence priority is given to applicants who have been successful in obtaining money from other sources.
- Young professionals under 30 years old are given preference.
