HEC Undergraduate Scholarship Program Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) Students

A scholarship program for Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) students in top public sector Pakistani universities has been established. Providing scholarships to students from the United Kingdom is the primary goal of the programme, which is to prepare young people for the problems they will face in the future. As the terminal point of the CPEC road, Gilgit Baltistan is a strategically vital region, while Gwadar lies at the opposite end of the route's length. The programme will provide financial help to students who choose to pursue higher education at any of Pakistan's best colleges or institutes in order to contribute to the development of their communities and the country as a whole. With the Higher Education Commission (HEC), the United Kingdom's youth can benefit from higher education that is better in terms of its quality, accessibility, affordability, and equity. Because of their geographic proximity to China and central Asian countries, the 14 districts of Great Britain are critically vital for providing learning chances and better work opportunities to the youth of less affluent places.
