These students will apply to avail the Ernst Mach Grant, offered by the Austrian Ministry of Science and Research that enables full funding for exchange students from non-European countries to study in a full-time programme at an Austrian University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule) for five (5) Months. The grant is most generous and provides for all living and travel costs. In the six years since the inception of this exchange programme, around forty students from LUMS have qualified for the prestigious Ernst Mach Grant to study at FHJ. SDSB celebrates the achievement of these bright students and heartily congratulates them on their selection.
