For bachelor’s and one-tier master’s degrees, a minimum of 12 years of education is required, while applicants for master’s programs must have completed 16 years of education. Those with 17-18 years of education are eligible to apply for a PhD.
The scholarships cover tuition fees and offer financial assistance for accommodation and health expenses. It’s important to note that while the program doesn’t fully cover the cost of living, it does contribute to students’ expenses.
For detailed information about the available degree programs and fields of study, interested individuals can check out HEC’s official website.
Prospective applicants must submit their applications, including their final degree and transcript, by the deadline on August 1, 2024. Further details can be found on the HEC’s website.
