GILGIT, Dec. 14 (Gwadar Pro) - Karakoram International University (KIU) has invited applications from its students under the “China-Pakistan Friendship–Ambassadorial Merit-cum-Need Scholarship”. The scholarship program, which is supported by the Embassy of China in Pakistan, is designed to encourage gender balance, thus 50% of the scholarships will be awarded to female students on KIU’s main campus and sub-campuses.

Applications are invited from regular students (Undergraduate and Graduate programs) of all disciplines of KIU Main and Sub Campuses and students have to apply before March 10, 2023.

This is phase II of the China-Pakistan Friendship – Ambassadorial Merit-cum-Need Scholarship. Earlier in August, KIU awarded scholarships to 130 students. Under the first phase, an amount of Rs. 5.2 million was distributed among 130 students, with each scholarship recipient receiving Rs. 40,000. At least 50% of the scholarships were awarded to female students on KIU’s main campus and sub-campuses.

China Study Centre (CSC) at KIU is managing the process of awarding scholarships to the students of the university. China-Pakistan Friendship scholarship is an excellent initiative by the Chinese Embassy which promotes quality education as well as improves gender balance in Gilgit-Baltistan.
