HEC announces 6000 scholarships in Pakistan

Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has decided to award 6000 scholarships to needy students from different parts of Pakistan under HEC merit and needs-based scholarship program during the next three years.

This was apprised by Advisor Human Resource Development Higher Education Commission HEC Prof. Dr. Riaz Hussain Qureshi through a video conferencing session with the participants of 7th Training of Trainers TOT workshop on “Effective Test Item Construction Techniques” being jointly organized by Higher Education Commission (HEC) , National Testing Service Pakistan (NTS) and Inter University Consortium for Promotion of Social Sciences Pakistan( IUCPSS) at Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur for the faculty members belonging to Sindh. Prof. Dr. Parveen Shah Vice Chancellor Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur was also present on the occasion.

He said that these scholarships would be awarded to talented but financially constrained students especially those from rural areas so as to ensure greater equity in enrollment at different public sector higher education institutions HEIs throughout the country. The needs based scholarships are focused on providing opportunities for access to higher education especially to under privileged students belonging to remote and far flung areas of the country who despite possessing academic merit, are unable to finance their education. Under this new initiative, special emphasis is given to the students belonging to Balochistan, FATA, interior Sindh and Southern Punjab to support higher education of maximum number of academically qualified needy students from the very poor segments of the country. These scholarships would be awarded through Financial Aid Offices at the universities in a transparent and well defined mechanism.

He also informed that HEC indigenous and foreign scholarships are being awarded as per federal government quota policy. He urged the participants of the workshop to disseminate this information and guide the prospective candidates from Sindh province in this regard. He also emphasized them to avail the benefit of various HEC initiatives.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Dr. Parveen Shah extended thanks to HEC and NTS for selecting Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur for organizing such a useful academic activity. She also lauded the contribution of HEC for bringing about positive and revolutionary changes in higher educational sector of Pakistan especially at the universities situated in far flung and rural areas of the country. She also assured her cooperation in this regard.
