Imran Khan has made considerable changes in the country ever since he took over Prime Minister’s office. Starting off with setting strict accountability-standards on an administrative level, he then continued on reforming major areas that needed attention, including law enforcement.
Furthermore, Pakistan’s Prime Minister didn’t hold back and fought for the rights of the Muslim Kashmiris in Indian-Occupied Kashmir, bringing various leaders together.
Among them, Turkey’s President and Malaysia’s Prime Minister extended their support. However, one area that was left untouched was that of education. Finally, Imran Khan has taken great steps towards equipping the talented youth with the right resources for a bright future.
Prime Minister Imran launches one of the largest scholarship programs.
He took it to Twitter to announce this “largest-ever needs-based undergraduate scholarship programme” that will be awarding 50,000 scholarships every year. Moreover, half of those scholarships will be handed over to women only. This is an impressive step forward and deserving students can avail such golden opportunity.
Imran tweeted, “I will launch the largest ever needs-based undergraduate scholarship programme in the history of Pakistan today. 200,000 scholarships will be awarded over the next 4 years, 50,000 every year, 50% of these for women to promote human capital development under my

These scholarships will be awarded to students that are admitted to any public sector university on merit and their family’s income comes “below poverty threshold”. In addition to this, this programme also encourages the differently-abled students to apply including those who hail from rural or remote areas. The scholarship will cover the tuition fees and provide students with a stipend. The deadline to apply for these scholarships is December 10.
People laud the Prime Minister’s efforts towards assisting the needy-yet-talented students of Pakistan!

There is no greater investment than into the young minds that are the future of Pakistan. No child should be deprived of education because of their difficult financial standing. Moreover, basic education should be free across all schools. May the able minds of this country find the best opportunities with the help of these scholarships.
