Especially, I owe a very warm Thank You to Engr Prof Dr Niaz Ahmad Akhtar (SI) Vice Chancellor, University of the Punjab, Lahore for his guidance and support in materialising this initiative.

The MoU will serve the purpose to offer scholarships to the students at FCIT who belong to a relatively low income background. PEF has offered scholarships in terms of full tuition fee waiver to 50 students every year starting from Fall 2021. Each selected student of FCIT will get a scholarship amount 60,000 PKR per year for a period of four years. In the steady state, 200 students would be receiving scholarships worth of 12 million PKR, every year.

It is the first time that PEF has offered scholarships to the students of computing disciplines, in Pakistan.
