1500 students to receive Japanese scholarships: Seiji KojimaPunjab schools upgrade programme

PESHAWAR, Sept 13: Japanese Ambassador to Pakistan Mr. Seiji Kojima said Government of Japan under its Non Project Grant Aid (NPGA)will provide scholarships to 1500 students from 26 Pakistani Universities over a span of five years.

The Japanese Ambassador said this while addressing scholarship award distribution ceremony here at a local hotel on Wednesday.

The Japan Ambassador gave scholarship award to 33 selected students of the Institute of Management Sciences Peshawar.

The ceremony was attended among others by honorary Consul General of Japan Embassy Nawabzada Fazal Karim Afridi, Joint Director Institute of Management Sciences Dr. Mohsin, Khalid Sutlan Khwaja and officials of the Japanese embassy.

The Japanese Ambassador said his government under NPGA has provided approximately Rs.600 million for this project of Japanese Need Based Scholarship to the Higher Education Commission.

He said, the purpose of this project is to help the students who have been forced to abandon their studies due to their economic constraints. These scholarships will support those deserving students in completing their academic careers thereby, enabling them to play a vital role in the development of this country in the future, he maintained.

Mr. Seiji Kojima said the Government of Japan under this need based scholarship programme gives special consideration to the students from the Fata region. "Therefore I would like to encourage students from Fata studying in this institution or in other institution to apply for this scholarship", he told the participants of the ceremony.

The Japanese Ambassador congratulated the students on receiving the scholarships and said these students would prove to be an asset to the nation through their hard work and dedication.

He assured that the government of Japan would continue its efforts to support enhancement of higher education in Pakistan. APP
