There are many countries in the world where people are unable to get an education because of their financial issues. This is something common in third-world countries. The high illiteracy rate in these countries is because people are unable to afford education. Even if they somehow manage to afford education till intermediate, they can’t afford the expenses of universities. Higher education in Pakistan like any other country is quite expensive. This is why students in Pakistan don’t go for further studies. However, to counter this the facility of ‘scholarships’ was introduced. Neemopani presents all the right scholarships for Pakistani students to take full advantage of such opportunities.
Scholarships enable the students aspiring for higher education to carry on with their studies either in their own country or some other country. These scholarships are designed to bring the literacy rate of a country at par with other countries. There are two types of scholarships i) scholarships offered by the government, ii) international scholarships. These scholarships are either fully funded or partially funded. This entirely depends on the scholarship program offered. Many internationally funded scholarships are also being offered in Pakistan too. Many Pakistani students have opted for these scholarships in the past which helped them to achieve higher career opportunities. The government offered scholarships are also available to Pakistani students.
The problem here is not the scholarships but ‘when and by whom the scholarships are offered.’ Most of the students miss out on these opportunities just because they were not informed in time about the opening of a scholarship programme. To address this issue and facilitate students with this opportunity, Neemopani has taken the initiative to bring all the authentic scholarship programmes offered in Pakistan on a common platform.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), is a German organization that provides scholarships to students looking for getting higher education in Germany. It also provides scholarships to students for research purposes. DAAD supports over 10,000 Germans, researchers, and international students around the world. DAAD grants are available for graduates, doctoral and post-doctoral students. The best thing about DAAD scholarships is that it works independently of any diplomatic or political pressures. Like many countries, DAAD scholarships are available for Pakistani students as well.
Fulbright scholarships are one of many cultural exchange programmes offered by the United States. The Fulbright programme aims at promoting cultural diplomacy between the countries. Fulbright scholarships are available for citizens of the US to study in other countries. Likewise, people from other countries can also avail themselves of these scholarships to study, research, or teaching purposes. The Fulbright scholarship programme is available to the graduates of Pakistan. Pakistani students can apply for a post-doctoral research grant at institutions in the US.
