HEC scholarships for meritorious students
HEC comes up with 1,500 scholarships
Islamabad, Aug 10: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has planned 1,500
scholarships for meritorious students wanting to pursue higher education in
nursing and midwifery.
This was announced by HEC In-charge Shehnaz Wazir
Ali at a seminar on 'Making a Difference: Image Building of Nursing &
Midwifery Professionals' at the National Institute of Health Sciences
The HEC in-charge, while acknowledging the unavailability of
quality nursing professionals in the country and lack of adequate educational
opportunities for nurses, was of the view that the plan, once executed, would
supply qualified, trained nurses and midwives to the national health system that
would ensure better medical services in the country.
She regretted that
the provision of quality education to health professionals, especially nurses,
has never been a priority of successive governments, and added that however the
present government is committed to provide better educational opportunities and
due societal respect and status to nurses and midwives. "We're taking up these
issues on priority basis," she said.
The HEC in-charge appreciated the
collaboration between the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) and Harvard Medical
International (HMI), USA, for detting up the NIHS consisting of colleges for
nursing, pharmacy, allied health, dentistry and medicine, and billed the project
as a symbol of close cooperation between Pakistan and the US.
Executive Director Dr. Arif Siddiqui, on the occasion, said that the DHA,
Islamabad, has decided to set up a state-of-the-art teaching hospital along with
a medical university in collaboration with the HMI to meet the demand for a
quality medical institution in the country.

President Shahid Ahmed Khan said that the College of Nursing & Midwifery at
NIHS would produce quality nurses and develop a faculty for nursing and
midwifery programmes in the country. He said with particular emphasis on
training of nursing and allied health staff, the college would meet the
educational needs of nursing and midwifery students at Bachelors, Masters and
During the session, nursing professionals from across the
country highlighted issues and challenges confronting them.

Punjab, Sindh to give scholarships to NWFP girl students: Gul
Peshawar: Awami National Party (ANP) Working Committee Member Gul
Mina Bilal Ahmad Sunday said that over 1,200 female students from the five most
backward districts of the province would get scholarships for FA and FSc classes
from different educational institutions of the Punjab and Sindh. In a statement,
Gul Mina said that the deserving female students from Chitral, Shangla, Tank,
Hangu and Kohistan would benefit from these scholarships, as they often
abandoned education because of poor economic condition of their families.
ANP leader said that the governments of the Punjab and Sindh would bear the
expenses of these deserving female students. The provincial government would
open more educational institutions to enhance the female literacy rate in the
province, Gil Mina said, adding that the government had planned to ensure women
participation in the development of the province, as without their participation
it was hard to achieve the targeted goals. Daily Times
