Introducing the HEC Indigenous Scholarship 2020/2021

HEC Indigenous Scholarship is a scholarship scheme established by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan to provide scholarships for the citizens of Pakistan to pursue higher education. The scholarships are available for MS with a thesis, MS leading to Ph.D., and Ph.D. fellowships.

Its objective is to create a critical mass of 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 R&D potential of public as well as private universities and it will also strengthen the local industrial sector.

With the launching of the 5000 HEC Indigenous Scholarship Scheme, research culture in public and private sector universities has been developed under international norms/standards.

This project is focused on diversified disciplines belonging to all fields of Science and Technology as well as Social Sciences, Humanities and Life Sciences.

To enhance the research facilities in these fields, the Higher Education Commission has funded many departments and universities to establish research labs. This has brought tremendous change in the research culture of Pakistani universities.

HEC has kept a great emphasis on indigenous scholarship schemes because locally rained researchers work on local problems of great national significance. Their research, therefore, is expected to have direct relevance to the growth and socio-economic development of Pakistan.

Also, this scheme provides funds to the universities for upgrading their research facilities particularly small laboratory equipment, chemicals, IT equipment, etc. which not only facilitates research of the HEC scholar but also serves as an asset for the department to establish up to date research laboratories.
