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 (NIHS).

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.

NIHS 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.

DHAI Education Foundation 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 PhD levels.

During the session, nursing professionals from across the country highlighted issues and challenges confronting them.

Partners of Harvard Medical International (PHMI), Massachusetts, USA, and Vice President Dr Thomas Aretz also attended the seminar that was followed by a function, in which Defence Secretary Athar Ali distributed certificates to participants of the faculty development programme on the successful completion of training.

Islamabad: Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Dr Babar Awan on Saturday called upon Muslim scholars to utilise all their energies on research work for the benefit of Muslim Ummah.

He stated this while addressing the concluding ceremony of the Training Course on Imams, organised by the Dawah Academy of International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI).

He urged the Ulema for their vital role in inculcating positive thinking in the minds of the young generation, adding that it is the need of the hour to change the education system across the country for socio-economic prosperity and Ulema should be taught about the importance of modern science & technology education for public to compete in the global competition for development.

Babar Awan said that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is a source of guidance for the Muslim Ummah as well as all humanity across the world and urged to follow the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) for global peace and prosperity.

Rector IIUI Prof Fateh Muhammad Malik said the present age is the age of science & technology and Ulema should tell the general public about the protection and importance of human rights to eliminate the menace of extremism and sectarianism from society. Islam always gives the message of peace, unity and brotherhood, and Ulema should play their role in the promotion of harmony, he said.

Chairman Dawah Academy IIUI Sahabzada Sajidur Rehman also spoke on the occasion and presented the performance report of the Academy.

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.

The 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.
