Higher Education Commission (HEC) was established in 2002 for improvement and promotion of the higher education sector in Pakistan. The Higher Education Commission’s (HEC) purpose is to “enable institutions of higher learning to function as growth engines for Pakistan’s socio economic development.”  Since the inception of HEC, the first priority was to improve the quality of teaching and research in institutions through highly qualified faculty. Around 150 academics, intellectuals, researchers, businesspeople, and professionals from Pakistan took part. In total, 11 Focus Groups comprising academia, industry, and research and development were organized in the following areas: Sciences, New Higher Education Trends, Physical Sciences, Medical Sciences, Engineering & Technology, Business Education, Development Studies, Economics, Biological Sciences, Arts & Humanities, and Agricultural Studies to select specific topics and areas of research that are strategically crucial for Pakistan’s development in the next ten years while keeping the China Pakistan Economic Corridor in mind.

The scholarship recipient will be able to study at top-ranked international colleges in advanced nations. HEC Overseas Scholarships are available in the following disciplines in 2021. Under this category, scholarships are offered each year for Direct PhD and MS/MPhil leading to PhD programmes. Scholars are placed in technologically advanced nations with no/minimal/special tuition fee rates, for which HEC and host country higher education authorities and institutions have signed Memorandums of Understanding.  Since its founding, HEC has invested heavily in human resource development to generate PhD staff for universities; yet, due to increases in DAIs and student population in the higher education sector, the total percentage of PhD VS Non-PhD teachers has remained constant. Nonetheless, university accessibility, quality, publications, R&D activities, and rankings have improved at the national and international levels. Continuous development financing / new schemes are necessary to raise the ratio of PhD vs non-PhD professors. Never pass up the opportunity to study on a full scholarship.
