  3. PhD Programme and Post-doctoral Research Programme
  4. IsDB-ISFD for Vocational Education & Training (VET)

The Bank has also launched a joint programme with The World Academy of Science (TWAS) in Trieste, Italy to support capacity building aimed at building critical mass in the fields of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) to address sustainable development challenges of member countries (www.twas.org).

These Scholarship programmes are important part of the developmental initiatives led by IsDB to foster technology and knowledge sharing among its member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries. They are designed to attract talented male and female students and build the right competencies required to empower communities and achieving national and global development plans including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

To combine academic rigours with cost saving, the IsDB has pursued a partnership programme with selected reputable universities worldwide, under which the hosting universities will play an important role to provide the students with the necessary services, mentoring, guidance and counselling to ensure their academic success. Through these strategic partnerships, the IsDB also wishes its graduates to be ready to dedicate themselves to their communities and countries.  The IsDB also expects them to play a leading role in assisting the development of their communities. In other word, the IsDB expects them to be Good Citizens and Competent Professionals at the same time.
