The regulator for higher education in the country has announced postgraduate scholarships for the students of Balochistan as well as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s merged tribal districts formerly known as FATA.

According to the HEC, the grant will be awarded during the academic year 2021-22 in all subjects and disciplines.

Totalling around Rs90,000, it will cover tuition fee, living allowance, book allowance, traveling allowance, and initial settlement allowance.
