The Annemarie Schimmel Scholarship offers the opportunity to do post-graduate study in the United Kingdom to a woman who is committed to make a genuine contribution to her chosen field on her return to Pakistan.
The selection for the Annemarie Schimmel Scholarship is based completely on merit but a major consideration is given to the need and relevance of the particular degree for Pakistan and the commitment of the scholar to return and serve in Pakistan.
The Schimmel scholars will be chosen for their ability and commitment without discrimination as to religion, caste or creed.
Candidates must have either a professional degree or they should have completed sixteen years of education in a relevant discipline.
They must be citizens of Pakistan and have a declared intention to return and pursue a career in Pakistan.
Those having a minimum two year professional work experience will be given preference.
There is no restriction on age, but preference will be given to candidates between the ages of 25 and 40.
A genuine need for financial assistance is an essential condition of the scholarship. The candidates must supply adequate evidence that they would not be able to study abroad without financial assistance.
Candidates must bear the expenses of air travel.
While not a requirement, preference will be given to those candidates who have secured admission to a programme of study at a recognized institution of their choice in the United Kingdom.
In the absence of a sufficiently qualified candidate the scholarship committee reserves the right to make no nomination.
Candidates must have cleared their IELTS exam before appearing for the final interview held in November/December of the current year.
