The China Scholarship Council (CSC) is providing research and study opportunities for Pakistani researchers and students in Chinese universities in an effort to strengthen ties between the two countries’ educational systems.
The Government of China has announced that it has designated the Higher Education Commission (HEC) for these scholarships for the academic year 2024–2025 on behalf of the Government of Pakistan.
The primary impetus behind the initiative is to create and promote educational opportunities for foreign students and researchers pursuing bachelor’s, master’s or PhD degrees.
Applications for the concerned programme can be submitted to the related HEC portal or the CSC’s portal by December 28.
For further details, applicants can visit the official website, said local HEC sources.
According to the official HEC website, the CSC — entrusted by China’s Ministry of Education — is responsible for the enrollment and the administration of Chinese Government Scholarship Program.
Furthermore, only those applicants are considered under the Chinese Government Scholarship Program 2024-25 who have already a valid Higher Education Aptitude Test (HAT) or Higher Education Undergraduate Studies Admission Test (USAT) score (obtained after January 01, 2022).
The designated Chinese universities offer a wide variety of academic programs in Science, Engineering, Agriculture, Medicine, Economics, Legal Studies, Management, Education, History, Literature, Philosophy and Fine Arts and more for scholarship recipients at all levels.
