Pakistan is a country with gifted talent and a youth with tremendous potential to achieve great accomplishments in the fields of science and education. But not all people are lucky as sometimes some of the brightest students have to dropout from their universities due to lack of resources and poor financial conditions. In order to prevent such misfortunes, the government of Pakistan has directed the Higher Education Commission (HEC) to provide financial assistance to the deserving and meritorious students of the country by offering them Need Based Scholarships.
This scholarship program is aimed to provide opportunities to the talented youth of the country by helping them pursue quality education and removing their financial constraints by elevating their socio-economic status.
The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan has also put great emphasis on providing equal opportunities to students of remote underprivileged areas of Pakistan which primarily include:
- Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
- Southern Punjab
- Northern Sindh)
- Azad Jammu and Kashmir
