List of the Most Useful Websites to find International Scholarships / Positions (All-Levels)

Prepared by Zulfiqar Ali

Assalam-o-Alaikum,

Hope everyone of us is receiving most of Allah's blessings and thanking Him, in sha Allah.

This document is made solely to help the scholarship seekers from the very basic level, and share
opportunities of scholarships available worldwide at all degree-levels (Undergrad., Masters,
PhD, and Post-Doc).

We hope this document will help to find answers to very basic questions, such as the scholarship
in .......field, at ...... level, and in ..... country. Moreover, this document is expected to help one
find the scholarship in even one specific subject of a field (e. g., big data in computer science;
catalysis in chemical engineering; computational finance in finance/banking; political history in
history/arts, etc)

Before start, I have two special requests to the scholarship-seekers:

1) Please, do your best to find some opportunities by yourself first related to your
requirements, criteria or facts, in the following links. After that, if you still need further help or
guidance regarding some specific issue, you may ask for that.

2) You will finally get only one opportunity which Allah Subhanah wa T'ala has written for you,
from the available thousands of opportunities (say, out of about 1000 for a specific field at a
certain time), to lead you to some specific degree level (e.g. MS, PhD, etc.). So, do SHARE the
remaining 999 opportunities (which will be of no value for you, but might mean a lot for
others), such a big source of information (websites, links, databases, etc.)with the ones in need.
Ultimately it will give u a lot satisfaction and reward, inshaAllah.

For the ones who know about some other scholarship links or websites or groups which you
think are the most useful and easy to use, please do share those here to make it even a better
document.

Finally, please do not leave a single opportunity (no matter how small or big it seems to be) to
serve your religion and country. Always make both of them your first preference.

May Allah (Subhanah wa T'ala) bless us all (aameen).
