The MSc Scholarship in Science & Technology objective is to assist IDB Least Developed Member Countries (LDMCs) in the development of their human resources especially in science and technology that are both relevant and necessary for their development.
The programme offers scholarships leading to an M.Sc degree (in 2 years) in science and technology to students from following countries: Afghanistan, Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Comoros Island, Djibouti, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Palestine, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Togo, Uganda, Yemen.
Without prejudice to or disregard for other equally important fields of study, under the M.Sc Scholarship programme, eligible students may apply only for studies in Science, Engineering, Technology and Medicine/Medical Sciences.
The institutions listed under the Programme are those that have expressed willingness to accept IDB students with minimum tuition charges, such as Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, University Mohammed V (Morocco), University of Agriculture, Faisalabad (pakistan) and Middle East Technical University (Turkey), from where interested and/or applying students are encouraged to seek pre-admission or firm admission to facilitate quick placement.
Other institutions of study from member countries not on the list may be considered if their superiority can be substantiated (based on research/teaching staff, faculties and facilities) as being the best in the fields of study proposed by the candidates.
The list of institutions of study offering the areas of study covered under the Programme is available at the Offices of the IDB Governors for the member countries concerned, the designated focal/contact points for the Programme and the Office of the Scholarship Programme, IDB.
