HEC-French Needs Based Scholarship

INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES OF HEC-FRENCH NEEDS BASED SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

In Pakistan, currently, less than 8% of the 17-23 age group is enrolled in any form of higher education that is amongst the lowest in the world. The estimated population of this age group will be 30 million by the year 2015. In fact, it is a great resource that can be better exploited by providing necessary learning and grooming opportunities. An overwhelming majority of this group is from poor and deprived families.

The objective is to provide equal opportunity for the talented students who are at disadvantage being incapable of meeting cost of education at leading higher education institutions. This program will help in poverty alleviation by providing grooming and learning opportunities for the middle and lower middle class students who will have better job and business opportunities after completing their education.
