Foreign Ph.D. Scholarship Program:

The foreign Ph.D. scholarship programs have been developed to develop a research base in areas of key importance to the social and economic development of Pakistan, and in which the relevant facilities are not available inside the country. Here special care is being taken to ensure that the Ph.D. scholars have guaranteed employment on their return to Pakistan as well as sufficient start-up funds to setup a program of research and development in their respective areas of specialization. An innovative feature of the foreign scholarship program is the provision of travel and support funding for the Ph.D. supervisors of the respective scholars to visit Pakistan, as well as, for the scholar to continue interactions with the respective research groups at his alma-mater. The foreign scholarship programs are being concentrated in host countries having advanced standards of education combined with low tuition costs.

Indigenous Scholarship Program:
The indigenous scholarship programs have been developed in the light of successes and failures of numerous such programs implemented in the past decades. Care is being taken to ensure institutional support and capacity building along with provision of sufficient resources to the Ph.D. faculty supervisors and departments in which they will be functioning. These scholarship programs will be supported by institutional infrastructure development programs that will provide enhanced computational facilities, electronic linkages with institutions within and outside Pakistan as well as timely on-line access to archived literature. These scholarship schemes will also allow the students and faculty members to consult and work with their peers in other regions of the world by providing for travel grants as an inherent component of the program. To ensure quality of the Ph.D. dissertation work a necessary requirement of refereeing by international experts has been made mandatory.
