Scholarship opportunity for Pakistan visit

This week, CSASP and Wolfson College have welcomed two PhD students form the Lahore School of Economics as part of a one month scholarship visit. We were fortunate enough to be involved with the organisation of this exchange for the first time last year, 2015, and hope that it will become an annual ocurrence.

We are now seeking applications from Oxford students who would wish to be part of the return leg of the visit. We have full funding for four students to visit Lahore for one week between the 24th and 31st March 2016. The funding includes flights, accommodation, entertainment and tours of Lahore. The visit will enable Oxford students to interact with staff and students at the Lahore School of Economics, attend the Annual Economics Conference on the 30th-31st March (Please see full schedules below), and, depending on your research interests, present a seminar.

We are opening this invitation to students with a very general background in the social sciences, who are currently researching an area of potential interest to the staff and students of the Lahore School, or whose future research plans may turn towards Pakistan.

Preference will be given to students who would not otherwise get the opportunity to visit Pakistan. Students holding Indian passports are more than welcome to apply. 

If you are interested or have any questions, please send your C.V. and a 4-500 word outline of your research interests by 15th February 2016 to matthew.mccartney@area.ox.ac.uk.
