The Aga Khan Foundation offers a scholarship program to help students from developing nations continue their studies at the graduate level. Recipients of the scholarship receive half of the funding needed to cover tuition and fees as a grant from the foundation and the other half in the form of a loan that must be repaid. While the scholarship can be used for both master’s and doctoral programs, master’s students receive priority. To qualify for the program, applicants must be citizens of Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Syria, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Madagascar and Mozambique or current residents or citizens of France, Portugal, the UK, the US or Canada who emigrated from one of the aforementioned countries. Applicants must also be younger than 30 years of age and be studying areas related to international development.
