Access to Scientific Instrumentation Program

State-of-the-Art research equipment is critical to the development of scientific research in Pakistan's universities. However, the costs of acquiring and maintaining this equipment can be a major impediment. To address this, the Higher Education Commission has instituted the Access to Scientific Instrumentation Program (ASIP). Under this program, HEC provides financial support to the universities and R&D organizations for giving access to students of other HEIs to use their laboratories.


  • Providing financial support to scholars for their sample analysis through the latest scientific equipment

  • HEC Indigenous scholars are eligible subject to submitting proof of funds utilization, already provided to them under their scholarship
