Charles Wallace Pakistan Trust Fellowship Programme

    CWPT’s trustees have the authority to use the income from the Trust’s funds to benefit Pakistanis who are normally resident in Pakistan by enabling them to advance their professional development or doctoral studies in the United Kingdom in ways specified below. Administrative costs are kept to a minimum, and over 90% of CWPT’s investment income is spent on the Trust’s educational work. This consists of four separate programmes:

    • Doctoral Bursaries

    • Reserved Visiting Fellowships

    • Open Visiting Fellowships

    • Visiting Artists

    Please note that there is no provision for Bachelors or Masters degree students.

    The Trust is firmly committed to equal opportunities in all its activities.


    Charles Wallace Open Visiting Fellowships, offered under a partnership between the British Council in Pakistan and the Charles Wallace Pakistan Trust in the United Kingdom, enable Pakistani men and women to undertake short visits to the UK in order to broaden their professional knowledge, skills, and contacts. Eligible candidates are Pakistani nationals, residing in Pakistan. They are normally junior or mid-career professionals or academics aged between 30 and 50, working in the following disciplines:

    • The humanities, arts, and creative industries
    • The social sciences, and social development
    • The life sciences, including medicine.

    Up to 12 fellowships are awarded annually. Candidates who have never travelled abroad for study or professional purposes will have a modest advantage in the selection process.
