Scholarship for Oxford Students to visit Lahore, Pakistan

February 2015 sees the end of a very successful one month visiting scholarship for four PhD students from Pakistan hosted by Wolfson College and the Contemporary South Asia Programme in SIAS.  

We are now looking for three or four students from Oxford who would like to visit Lahore for one week between the 20th and 27th March, 2015.  The trip is fully funded, so will include flights, accommodation, entertainment, tours of Lahore and will enable Oxford students to interact with staff and students at the Lahore School of Economics, attend the Annual Economics Conference on the 26th-27th March, and depending on your research interests present a seminar.

We are opening this 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. Applicants who would otherwise not get the opportunity to visit Pakistan are particularly encouraged to apply.

More information on the Lahore School of Economics can be found on their website, along with a review of last year's conference, and the 2015 conference brief and draft schedule document is below.

If you are interested or have further questions please send your cv and a 4-500 word outline of your research interests to Matthew.McCartney@area.ox.ac.uk
