HEC scholarships for Baloch and FATA students approved

ISLAMABAD, Sept 26: The government has approved a project to provide higher education opportunities for students of Balochistan and FATA. The project aims at providing financial expenses for organising foundation courses for 1,300 students and bachelor degree programmes at Rs 28,600 per student.

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has submitted the project with the aim to provide financial assistance to 1,300 undergraduate students and 700 postgraduate students from Balochistan and FATA.

According to the HEC, the project aims to match the dual criteria of merit and need by providing scholarships to students who are unable to obtain higher education due to financial constraints.

This project will assist students in improving their economic condition and is targeted towards 2,000 bachelors and masters students belonging to Balochistan and FATA to study in various Pakistani universities.

After implementation of this project, it is expected that 1,300 students from Balochistan and FATA will graduate from quality educational institutions and 700 students from Balochistan and FATA will complete their masters in quality educational institutions.

Around 10 journalists belonging to FATA will attain doctoral degree from foreign universities. Meanwhile, the HEC has invited applications from Pakistani and AJK nationals, meeting eligibility criteria, for being considered for award of postdoctoral fellowship programme in the United Kingdom for 2008.

All awards will be made on the basis of the academic record, candidate's potential, development impact of research work proposed in Pakistan and the quality of the research proposals.

The eligibility criteria for the post doctoral fellowships programme have been announced on HEC's website www.hec.gov.pk

These awards are tenable at any approved UK university or higher education institutions for a fixed period of six months only.

Eligible medical doctors or dentists, if selected, may obtain six months clinical training in medicine or dentistry. Daily Times
