To achieve this objective, it is essential that the universities and other institutions of higher learning should not only be well equipped but staffed with highly qualified and experienced teachers. With these qualities they would be able to train more Ph.D.s with in the country. In view of this, it is essential to send our university teachers for post-doctoral research abroad to enable them to up-date their knowledge and skills in selective fields and specialization and new research projects.</span></span></p>24-08-2016 18:06:30<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-06.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://hec.gov.pk/english/scholarshipsgrants/SPPDFPF

The mission of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) is "to facilitate institutions of higher education to serve as engine of growth for the socio-economic development of Pakistan". Since the inception of HEC, first priority was to improve the quality of teaching and research in institution through highly qualified faculty. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">In order to meet the need of National Human Resource demand as per Pakistan vision of 2025. HEC had arranged a National Human Resource Development Conference on October 13, 2015 at Higher Education Commission. Around 150 academics, scholars, researchers, businessmen and professionals from across Pakistan participated. Total 11 Focus Groups representing academia, industry and R&D were formed in the following areas: Social Sciences, New Higher Education Trends, Physical Sciences, Medical Sciences, Engineering & Technology, Business Education, Development Studies, Economics, Biological Sciences, Arts & Humanities and Agricultural Studies to identify the specific fields and areas of research which are strategically important for the development of Pakistan in coming 10 years keeping in view the China Pakistan Economic Corridor as well. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">HEC has been investing major budget in the human resource development to develop PhD faculty for Universities since its inception but due to increase in the DAIs and student population in the higher education sector, overall percentage of PhD VS Non-PhD faculty remains the same. Nevertheless, accessibility, quality, publications, R&D activities and ranking of the universities increased at national and international level.

They are the make-or-break points of several years of hard work and research. However, unforeseen circumstances can put all this effort into serious jeopardy, whether it is financial burdens or time constraints. This is particularly problematic for overseas students. </font></font></p><font face="Calibri" size="3"><font face="Calibri" size="3"> <p align="LEFT" dir="LTR">The Higher Education Commission has instituted a special financial scheme to provide relief to students facing such problems. Through this scheme, monetary support can be provided to overseas scholars who require partial assistance (e.g. tuition, thesis evaluation/submission fee, living expenditure, etc.) in the final stages of their doctoral studies. This applies to PhD students who need this support to complete their studies, or do so in a shorter time period so they can return home earlier. This scheme also extends to the faculty members of public sector universities/DAIs who are enrolled in a PhD program abroad. </p> <strong style="text-decoration:underline;"><p align="LEFT" dir="LTR">Objectives: </p> </strong><ul><strong> </strong><li>To provide a safety net to students and faculty members studying abroad for their PhD</li><li>To contribute to producing the next generation of scientists, researchers and scholars in the public education sector </li><li>To strengthen the linkages between Pakistani and foreign universities. </li></ul> <p align="LEFT" dir="LTR">Every year, approximately 50 scholars are selected for the Overseas Partial Support program.
