Scholarship by State Bank of Pakistan
Dear all

Thanks to Goodman (Zubair) and Derivative Trader (Ahsan).

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Tahoma, Arial" id=quote>quote<hr height=1 noshade id=quote> Hey Azeem

I just wanted to draw your attention to another area. somebody was telling me that State bank of Pakistan has a scheme which works as follows

You obtain admission in PhD (finance) in one of the three institutions (cambridge, oxford and LSE) and they award you a scholarship for the term of PhD on the condition that when you qualify you work at least five years as Deputy Director in State Bank

If anybody is interested, I can find out more details about the scheme or you can contact SBP directly. IF anybody has the knowledge of the scheme please give details.

Goodman, the scheme is not just limited to top 3 UK universities but is also open for admission in other top univesities in other countries, like Ivy League in US and a couple of Canadian too.

The grant isn't that much so those of us who are not 'single' may not find the total scholarship quite appropriate considering London is a top expensive city to live in.

Anyways, since I am at LSE and have ample experience of Oxbridge too, so if anybody have any queries about programmes and living in Cambridge, Oxford or London, please don't hesitate to ask.

I may also be able to forward any 'grant' specific queries to people who are at LSE on this scheme.

Regards,
DT

I just thought of sharing this info with other members since not many people read the above under "Accounting & Audit" topic.........yes for those who only posts under General Discussions there is one folder called "Accounting Audit".

More info can be obtained from the following link

http//www.sbp.org.pk/scholarships/scholarships/index.htm

Once again I must thank Goodman and DT for providing us such a useful info.


Kind Regards

Anyways, yes indeed SBP has this Scholarship program for a while now. One of my friends was thinking of applying for it some time back. I wonder what happend. I'll ask him for its details and will put em up here, or maybe he'll tell all of us about this program right here on the forum.

Its better to take a look in detail at SBP's website to know in detail what they actually are offering. I think it is good whatever they are offering if someone wants to make Finance and Economics his/her career in long term. Please have a look at http//www.sbp.org.pk/scholarships/scholarships/index.htm

London is hell expensive but if this scholarship doesn't cover you well enough, many options of part time work are also open.

Dear Adnan

Thanks for your post highlighting the need to look at the broader picture. London is the second most expensive city in the world according to the latest cost-of-living survey.

We would appreciate if you could formally introduce yourself under "Meet the Members" section.

Kind Regards

Azeem

In case people skip the fine print, a quote from the site

"Note Due to quota constraints applications for grant of scholarships for universities other than USA are not being entertained for the present."
