HEC Overseas Scholarships for Balochistan Province (Batch-III) Announced
The project is focused towards providing opportunities for access to higher education to under privileged candidates of Balochistan, who despite possessing academic merit are unable to overcome the obstacle of funding, which is not only restricted to tuition costs, but extends to accommodation and living expenses.
The program is meant to provide 600 Master leading to PhD scholarships (200 overseas and 400 indigenous) to talented students of Balochistan. The current project is in line with the overall objectives of the sector and closely linked with the other development projects under implementation for the promotion and development of Province.
Establishment of new universities and development of existing universities are amongst the main functions of the Higher Education Commission under Rules of Business. The current scheme would in future be providing manpower for public sector universities.
