Scholarships are the backbone for students who want to have admission to the world’s qualified universities to learn. Pakistan is lacking behind in getting the international scholarship, for unknown reasons. But the main reason would be a lack of understanding by the students and low coordination between students and institutions. It is less due to the unqualified criteria by the international universities against Pakistani students.

A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education at a private elementary or secondary school, or a private or public post-secondary college, university, or other academic institution

All these are not the main subject of this blog. But the detail below is just covering the opportunities which Pakistani students have from well-reputed international universities across the globe, From Asia to Europe to America.

“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
