The Aga Khan Foundation annually provides a limited number of scholarships for master and programs. Excellent students from developing countries who have no other means of paying for their studies are eligible. Aga Khan Scholarships are awarded on a 50% grant, 50% loan basis. The selection process takes place once a year in June or July. The Aga Khan Foundation gives priority to Master degree program applicants, although applications from PhD applicants will be considered as long as the research topic concerns Third World issues that are of interest to the Aga Khan Development Network.
Currently, students from the following countries are eligible for the Agha Khan Scholarship: Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Syria, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique, Madagascar.
Scholarship requests from students looking to participate in short courses will not be considered, neither are applications from students who have already started the degree program they are filing a scholarship request for.
