Aga Khan Foundation’s International Postgraduate Scholarship Program 2024 – Apply Now

Are you looking for an opportunity to pursue postgraduate education but have no other means of financing your studies? Look no further than the Aga Khan Foundation’s International Scholarship Programme (AKF ISP). Established in 1969 by His Highness the Aga Khan, the AKF ISP has provided support to over 1,000 students to date. Recipients of the AKF ISP award are selected through a global, annual, and competitive application process, and the programme gives priority to Master’s programmes but will also consider applications for PhD studies.


It is important to note that the AKF ISP offers a limited number of new awards in each cycle, and applications for part-time programmes and short-term courses are not considered. Additionally, the AKF ISP awards are structured as half grant and half loan, where you need to repay 50 per cent of the award amount. Scholarships for Master’s studies are granted for the entire duration of the degree course, while for PhD students, scholarships are awarded for the first two years, after which you are expected to find funding from alternative sources.


To be eligible for an AKF ISP award, you must have excellent academic records, hold a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent training/professional experience, demonstrate genuine financial need, construct a thoughtful, reliable, multi-source funding plan, be admitted to a reputable postgraduate institution, and have strong leadership potential, professional experience, extracurricular and/or entrepreneurial achievements, and volunteer contributions. Preference is given to young professionals under 30 years of age.

If you meet these requirements and are interested in applying for an AKF ISP award, be sure to submit your completed application to the appropriate country-level entity by March 31, 2024.
