HEC extends date to apply for PhD fellowships

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has extended the date for applying for PhD fellowships till August 7 to facilitate the applicants.
The specific objective of the 5,000 indigenous scholarship scheme is to create highly qualified human resources in all fields of studies taught at the advanced level in local universities. These locally qualified academics and researchers will improve the research and development potential of public as well as private universities besides strengthening the local industrial sector.
Research culture in public/private sector universities has been developed in accordance with international standards with the launch of the scheme. This project focuses on diversified disciplines belonging to all fields of science and technology as well as social sciences, humanities and life sciences. The HEC has put great emphasis on the indigenous scholarship scheme because locally trained researchers work on local problems of great national significance. Their research is expected to have direct relevance to the growth and socio-economic development of Pakistan. This scheme also provides funds to the universities for upgrading their research facilities, particularly small laboratory equipment, chemicals and IT equipment, etc. which facilitates research of the HEC scholars as an asset for the department to establish latest research laboratories.
