Horizon 2020 - Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions
       Individual Fellowships (European and Global)

This way, Pakistani   researchers could carry out research at a European university for one or two years. The clear   advantage compared to the EU cooperative projects: No EU consortium is needed! It only needs the cooperation of   one entity in an EU member state (e.g. a German university) and a researcher from a third country (e.g. Pakistan) - or the other way around.

But under no circumstances will the Pakistan Scholar competition be open to anyone currently pursuing a graduate degree or working on a doctoral dissertation.
