Saudi Arabia declared funded scholarships for Pakistani students
According to the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan (APP), the Riyadh embassy announced in a notification that the kingdom would grant 700 fully paid scholarships for Pakistani students to study for diplomas, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in 25 universities throughout Saudi Arabia.
The embassy announced in a notification that “the number of scholarships was 600, which has now been increased to 700,” according to the APP.
Students in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia who are legally residing in both categories are eligible to apply for the scholarships via the following website: https://studyinsaudi.moe.gov.sa/
Prospective applicants should visit https://studyinsaudi.moe.gov.sa/ to find out more about the procedure and how to apply for the scholarships.
Additionally, the monarchy gave 600 Pakistani students fully financed scholarships the previous year.
Tuition, a monthly stipend of between 850 and 900 riyals, housing, return tickets, medical care, and a furnishing allowance for married students for three months were all covered by the program.
Australia’s University of Wollongong (UOW) offered Pakistan its most coveted Vice-Chancellor’s Leadership Scholarship back in October of this year.
This is the first time an Australian university has granted scholarships of this kind to Pakistan, according to a statement released by the Pakistan High Commission.
