Six hundred Pakistanis will receive fully funded Saudi scholarships to join top universities in the Kingdom. The scholarship initiative, which was announced by the Kingdom last year, was launched by the Saudi Ministry of Education earlier this week. It includes 25 universities that will receive students pursuing diploma, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral studies. The students will join their respective programs in September-October.
The program covers tuition fee, monthly stipend, lodging facility, return tickets, three-month furnishing allowance for married students, medical care, and a monthly stipend of between 850 and 900 riyals.
According to the scholarship details published by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, 75 percent of the students will be awarded scholarships from Pakistan, while 25 percent will be Pakistanis residing in the Kingdom.
