ISLAMABAD, Nov 4 (APP): Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday said Ehsaas Undergraduates Scholarship Programme would drive the country’s poor and talented youth to get education and achieve excellence.
Speaking at the launching ceremony of the largest-ever undergraduates scholarship program here, he said the people had no idea what a big change this program would bring in the society.
The prime minister lauded the efforts of his special assistant and Ehsaas Programme Chairperson Dr Sania Nishter for introducing the initiative, under which a total of 200,000 scholarships (50,000 per year) would be awarded to the needy and talented students during the next four years.
He said due to unemployment, the talented and intelligent youth of the country was developing intolerance and tendency toward negative practices. However, this scholarship programme would also help the deserving students to divert their energies toward positive sides.
