am a summa cum laude graduate
of the University of California
at Berkeley, with a B.A.in architecture
(May 1995), and have been working
as a junior architect with the
Pakistani architectural firm
of Nayyar Ali Dada and Associates
since then. I was accepted at
Yale University and U.C. Berkeley
for a Masters in Architecture,
Professional degree, focusing
on affordable housing for developing
countries for Fall 1998. Unfortunately,
I could not attend either school
because of financial reasons.
Since there is no possibility
of any govt. aid from Pakistan
due to financial emergency after
the nuclear tests, I would be
grateful if you could send me
information on any scholarships/financial
aid that you offer for an international
student like myself.
you for your note to FEMINIST.COM
and congratulations on all of
your accomplishments. I will
mail you information about the
Third Wave Foundation (a national organization
for young feminists) and specifically
an application for our scholarships
for young women. Additionally,
I recommend that you contact
is an office in New York, San
Francisco and a few other cities.
They have information on other
scholarships, including those
geared toward foreign students.
That might be your best bet.
