With these qualities they would be able to train more Ph.D.s with in the country. In view of this, it is essential to send our university teachers for post-doctoral research abroad to enable them to up-date their knowledge and skills in selective fields and specialization and new research projects.</span></span></p>24-08-2016 18:06:30<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-06.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />

They are the make-or-break points of several years of hard work and research. However, unforeseen circumstances can put all this effort into serious jeopardy, whether it is financial burdens or time constraints. This is particularly problematic for overseas students. </font></font></p><font face="Calibri" size="3"><font face="Calibri" size="3"> <p align="LEFT" dir="LTR">The Higher Education Commission has instituted a special financial scheme to provide relief to students facing such problems. Through this scheme, monetary support can be provided to overseas scholars who require partial assistance (e.g. tuition, thesis evaluation/submission fee, living expenditure, etc.) in the final stages of their doctoral studies. This applies to PhD students who need this support to complete their studies, or do so in a shorter time period so they can return home earlier. This scheme also extends to the faculty members of public sector universities/DAIs who are enrolled in a PhD program abroad. </p> <strong style="text-decoration:underline;"><p align="LEFT" dir="LTR">Objectives: </p> </strong><ul><strong> </strong><li>To provide a safety net to students and faculty members studying abroad for their PhD</li><li>To contribute to producing the next generation of scientists, researchers and scholars in the public education sector </li><li>To strengthen the linkages between Pakistani and foreign universities. </li></ul> <p align="LEFT" dir="LTR">Every year, approximately 50 scholars are selected for the Overseas Partial Support program.
