HEC foreign universities scholarship programme

HEC scholarship giving chances for abroad studies
Islamabad, July 09: The scholarship programme of Higher Education Commission is benefiting people across the country and as a result the students from the lower-middle class and from far-flung areas get chance to study in the top class universities of the world.

The commission has started the programme in terms of local and foreign scholarship schemes for the students and for faculty members of different universities as well. Presently 2,500 scholars have been studying abroad in different countries of the world including America, England, Germany, Austria and France.

The programme has many success stories like Muhammad Tahir. Born on September 8, 1978, to parents of humble origins in a small farming family of a far-flung village, Muhammad Tahir spent his early education years in his native village of 'Shehr Sultan' - a remote, inaccessible village in Jatoi tehsil of Muzaffargarh District of in Southern Punjab.

After achieving first division in his matriculation in his village school, Tahir went on to attend the Government Degree College in Alipur, which required a total daily commute of 46 kilometers from his home and back. Despite this distance, and the subsequent tight schedule, he completed his B.Sc in 1999, ranking first in the college and winning a scholarship for higher studies.

Tahir decided to further enhance his credentials by completing M.Phil degree in physics at QAU in 2004, under the guidance and supervision of Dr Kashif Sabeeh, who was instrumental in providing Tahir motivation to achieve new educational heights. A paper from the thesis was published in The American Physical Society journal, one of the most influential periodicals in the world, and noted for its highly respected authorship.

Tahir was then offered a position as lecturer at the University of Sargodha, and after observing his aptitude and interest in physics, it was suggested by then vice-chancellor that he should compete for higher studies and apply to the Higher Education Commission's Foreign Ph.D. programme.

He chose Imperial College, London, as his destination. Having been accepted, the HEC awarded him a scholarship under the "10pc Overseas Scholarships" scheme, and Tahir began his studies at Imperial College, London, in 2006, under the supervision of Prof. Angus Mackinnon.
During his year and a half stay, and under Prof. Mackinnon's guidance, Tahir went on to publish additional seven articles, all in the American Physical Society. This is a prime example of how, with continued support, guidance and perseverance, one can achieve the near impossible. The Nation

HEC anti-smoking lectures campaign
Lahore: The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) has not held a single anti-smoking lecture, despite its announcement to have anti-smoking lectures in the institutions of the city.

HEC Learning Innovation Director General Noor Amina said that they had nominated institutions of the city for the lectures and they would launch their campaign soon. She also said that the political situation of the country was one of the reasons for the delay.

The officials of various universities' on the other hand, said that they did not know about the HEC's anti-smoking lectures, as HEC had not sent them a letter in this regard.

The HEC in collaboration with the World Health Organisation and the Health Department had started an anti-smoking campaign and had conducted a series of lectures in 16 public and private institutions of Islamabad and Rawalpindi. The HEC officials had announced two months ago, that they would launch a campaign against smoking in the educational institutions of Punjab as well, starting from the first week of June but they had not started any programme as yet.

Noor Amina said last month that they would start the campaign from the private institutions of Lahore, as the students of these institutions were more prone to smoking. According to the HEC plan, they wanted to conduct anti smoking lectures in the National College of Arts (NCA), Beaconhouse National University (BNU), Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), Fast-National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (Fast-NUCES), Government College University (GCU), Kinnaird College (KC), Forman Christian College University (FCCU), Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) and the Punjab University (PU).

Campaign: Noor Amina said on Tuesday, that they would start a campaign in Lahore in a few days, as they had held a meeting with the federal health minister in this connection, and discussed the campaign's strategy. She said that the city's universities had not nominated their names as yet for the lectures about the hazards of smoking. She added that they wanted to launch a similar campaign in Peshawar, but due to the political situation of the country they were also facing problems in that city.

An HEC official said that the universities would be told to implement the Prohibition of Smoking and Protection of Non Smokers Health Ordinance 2002, which would declare all educational institutions non-smoking zones. He said that the HEC was concerned about the increasing habit of smoking and taking drugs among students. He said that although smoking was banned in the institutions of the city, the administrations had failed to stop students from smoking. He added that the campaign was meant to educate the teachers, students and the private and public universities' administrations across Pakistan about the hazards of smoking.

Letter: BNU Communication Adviser Arfa Sarfraz said that it was not in her knowledge that the HEC had sent any letter to them and that she did not know that they wanted to conduct anti-smoking lectures in BNU.

LCWU Communication Adviser Anjum Zia said that she also had not received any HEC notification that it wanted to conduct a lecture about smoking in the university. She said that LCWU was a non-smoking zone, as they had not received a single smoking case in the varsity.

PU Spokesman Dr Mujahid Mansori said that he did not know that the HEC had sent a letter to the PU regarding an anti-smoking lecture in the university. Daily Times
