List of allowed disciplines for Overseas PhD Scholarships
Once you have buffed this up, you could just wait and hope being amongst the few lucky. One thing to be noted is that no distinction would be made over race or gender as per claims, but the truth in this statement could only be dissected as time rolls again.
The Purpose reads as follows, as per claims,
“The main objective of this project is to produce 1500 PhD level Engineers, Scientists and Technologists who will eventually become the potential faculty members of the Universities of Engineering, Science and Technology. These institutes are being built in collaboration with technologically advanced universities of France, Italy, Germany, China, South Korea and Austria.”
Overseas PhD Scholarships seems a once in a lifetime chance from HEC to all those whose economic conditions are pitiable and the chances for higher education minimal. The only reservation is over the trustworthiness of those assigned to administer the programs. Let’s hope I am wrong, but this does not seem to be the case given the custom of Pakistani society.
