Islamabad, Higher Education Commission (HEC) is intended to award more than 10000 scholarships to needy students from different parts of the country under its needs-based scholarship program during current financial year.
These scholarships would be awarded to talented but financially deprived students especially those from rural areas to ensure justice to get admissions 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 of 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 regions of the country.
These scholarships would be awarded through Students Financial Aid Offices (SFAO) established at 60 public sector higher education institutions in a transparent and well defined mechanism.
The scholarship amount would cover the expenditure including tuition fee, books, lodging, transportation and other academic costs.
The already enrolled students would be eligible to apply and application forms can be obtained from the Financial Aid offices of the selected universities.
Since its inception, HEC has started a number of programs for provision of equitable access to higher education especially to marginalized segments of the society.
The award of needs based scholarships will be greatly helpful in poverty improvement by providing grooming and learning opportunities to the youth belonging to modest background and lower middle class.
These youth after completing their studies would get better job and business opportunities to serve their families and the country.
