Opportunity Description

Hanns Seidel Foundation HFS‘s flagship project, the Hanns Seidel Scholarship Program (HSSP), is offered to Support Afghan Refugees in Pakistan with the goal of enhancing regional stability in Pakistan-Afghanistan by offering long-term support to young, gifted Afghan students who are registered as refugees in Pakistan and enrolled in Pakistani universities.

These Afghan students will be able to pay for their university educations, receive additional training outside of their studies in important fields, gain vital professional experience through on-the-job training, and put their newly acquired knowledge to work.

The HSSP is being implemented by HSF Pakistan and the National Dialogue Forum as part of a larger bilateral conversation between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The scholarships will have conceptual support from HSF Pakistan’s partner organizations and the HSF Country Office. This extra help will be helpful for social cohesiveness, academic achievement, tolerance, and dispute resolution.
