Limited funds, mostly recieved from donations of different Muslim countries,
and Zakat donations are available for extremely deserving students
for the award of financial assitance. The stipends of these awards may only
supplement a part of the total expenses, and in no way are means for all
the expenses incurred by the candidates yearly expenses.
Therefore, candidates applying for admission and their parents/guardians
must be prepared to defray full or substantial part of the expenses themselves.
Overseas students may not be allowed to work within Pakistan on their Student
Visa, therefore they need to be prepared before hand ofr the full duration costs
of their study.

additional monthly miscellaneous expenses of approximately Pak.Rs. 1000-2000,
depending upon their personal needs, etc.

These are just rough approximates currently (July '97) to give an idea.
Keep in mind that with time, these are subject to change due to inflation,
price hikes, etc.
Overseas foreign students can easily exchange foreign currencies, as there
are several money changers available in Islamabad, as well as other major
cities of Pakistan. Local banks also hold foreign currency accounts, thus
making it easier to wire mony from overseas and then getting it changed at
local money changers for personal use. Many foreign banks are also available
within Islamabad, such as Citibank, American Express Bank, Hong Kong Bank,
Emirates Bank, and many others.
