http://www.ogs.com.pk/ogs_overview.htm

OGS, founded in 1984, with a modest base of 50 members is the alumni association of one of the premier educational institutions of Pakistan, the Karachi Grammar School (KGS). Over the years, the role of the Society has evolved to providing financial assistance for under privileged students throughout Pakistan. OGS is a vibrant organization with a membership base of over 1000 chapters in Karachi, Lahore, London,

Scholarships are granted after an informed decision making process that includes a detailed application, interview with a Scholarship Committee that consists of the current President and past 6 OGS Presidents. The Scholarship Committee awards merit based scholarships to students whose family circumstances do not allow for education expenditure; however, quarterly reviews of academic performance are undertaken to ensure that students benefiting from the scholarship are taking full advantage of the facility being provided to them. While there are exceptions, OGS Trust aims to support a particular individual until such time that the person has commenced a professional career and can start contributing to his/her family.

OGS Trust limits its assistance to education institutions in Pakistan due to the limited funds at its disposal. For further information on how you can play a role in helping OGS to achieve its objectives please visit their website at: http://www.ogs.com.pk

The scholarship is extended annually up to a maximum period of 24 months for master studies and 48 months for PhD studies, under the condition that the students fulfil the requirements for the scholarship and requirements for studies in Sweden. In return, the scholarship holders sign an agreement with the HEC to return to Pakistan after a successfully completed study period to work in Pakistan. Failure to comply with this agreement makes it incumbent on the graduates to repay the scholarship.

The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG) Awards

http://www.hfg.org/rg/guidelines.htm

The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG) welcomes proposals from any of the natural and social sciences and the humanities that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence, aggression, and dominance. Highest priority is given to research that can increase understanding and amelioration of urgent problems of violence, aggression, and dominance in the modern world.

Particular questions that interest HFG concern violence, aggression, and dominance in relation to social change, the socialization of children, intergroup conflict, interstate warfare, crime, family relationships, and investigations of the control of aggression and violence. Research with no useful relevance to understanding human problems will not be supported, nor will proposals to investigate urgent social problems where the foundation cannot be assured that useful, sound research can be done. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.

HFG awards research grants to individuals for individual projects and does not award grants to institutions for institutional programs. As discussed in the above section on "Budgeting & Taxation," individuals who receive research grants may be subject to taxation on the funds awarded, depending on locality, tax status, timing, nature of the award, and other factors.

http://www.hfg.org/df/guidelines.htm

In addition to our program of support for postdoctoral research, ten or more dissertation fellowships are awarded each year to individuals who will complete the writing of the dissertation within the award year. These fellowships of $15,000 each are designed to contribute to the support of the doctoral candidate to enable him or her to complete the thesis in a timely manner, and it is only appropriate to apply for support for the final year of Ph.D. work. Applications are evaluated in comparison with each other and not in competition with the postdoctoral research proposals. Applicants may be citizens of any country and studying at colleges or universities in any country.
