Aga Khan Foundation: International Scholarships 2013-2014



31 Mar 2013

The Aga Khan Foundation supports programs in rural development, broadly defined, in a number of developing countries. It provides scholarships and loans for postgraduate studies to outstanding students from the developing world, with priority for masters studies.

The Foundation also considers applications for PhD programs, and for travel and study awards for PhD students doing their research in developing countries on topics judged to be of interest to the Aga Khan Development Network.

The Foundation invites applications from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgystan, Syria, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique, Madagascar, France, Portugal, UK, USA, and Canada. Preference is given to students under 30 years of age.

The Foundation assists students with tuition fees and living expenses only. The cost of travel is not included in AKF scholarships. Applicants are requested to make every effort to obtain funding from other sources as well, so that the amount requested from the Foundation can be reduced to a minimum. Preference is given to those who have been able to secure some funding from alternative sources.

Half of the scholarship amount is considered as a loan, which must be reimbursed with an annual service charge of 5%.

Students may obtain application forms from AKF offices or Aga Khan Education Services / Boards in their countries of current residence. The application deadline is 31 March 2013, although it may be earlier in certain countries.
