Academic events are significant for professional development of researchers and scholars. They serve as a source for guidance, exposure, knowledge sharing, developing linkages, and problem solving. Academic Conferences, Seminars and Symposia provide opportunities for academicians to help understand the latest developments in their field, while creating opportunities for future academic collaborations.
Such events are the cornerstone of the academic environment. To cultivate this environment, the Higher Education Commission has set up a special Research Travel Grant Program for university faculty and PhD scholars at Pakistani Universities. Under this program, an academic selected to present work at a national or international academic event, is eligible to seek funding from HEC. Through provision of airfare, this grant also facilitates Pakistanis proceeding abroad to pursue Doctoral and Post-doctoral studies at foreign universities, and for foreign visits under Culture Exchange Programs.
