HEC Need-Based Scholarships 2021

Higher Education Commission is offering need-based scholarships. HEC Need-Based Scholarships are for those undergraduate students who are enlisted in the university on open merit. It is great news for needy students who want to get higher education. There is no shortage of talent among the youth in Pakistan. That’s why HEC has launched this scholarship program for youth higher education. There is no specific deadline for this scholarship.

So we invite all brilliant, hardworking and motivated students from low-income families to apply for this scholarship and win it for continuing their studies without any financial worries. The deserving candidates will have to apply through their respective universities because HEC is not directly enlisting students in this scholarship program.

However, students enrolled in universities on a self-finance basis can’t apply for these scholarships. If you are looking for more need-based & merit-based scholarships as well as jobs in the government sector, you can visit our website
