HEC Announces Commonwealth Scholarships 2023 for Pakistani Students

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has announced the prestigious Commonwealth Scholarships for 2023. These scholarships allow Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) students to pursue Master’s and Ph.D. programs in the United Kingdom.

The Commonwealth Scholarship program for 2023 offers a diverse range of scholarships to cater to the academic aspirations of Pakistani students. A total of 26 nominations are available for students pursuing Master’s degrees, 30 scholarships for those aiming for doctoral studies, and 10 scholarships dedicated to teaching faculty members pursuing Ph.D. programs.

Interested candidates can apply for these prestigious scholarships until October 17, 2023. The application process involves two crucial steps: Applicants must first submit their applications through the CSC’s online application system, which is mandatory for consideration. After completing the Commonwealth application, candidates should proceed to the HEC website for further registration.

To be eligible for the Commonwealth Scholarships, candidates must meet specific requisites set by both the HEC and the CSC: Applicants must be Pakistani or AJ&K nationals, and permanent residents of Pakistan or AJ&K. Dual nationals are not eligible. For Master’s scholarships, candidates must have achieved a first division in their 16-year Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the relevant field of study. For PhD scholarships, applicants should have attained a first division in their 17/18 years Masters/MS/MPhil degree in the relevant field.

A crucial requirement for all applicants is providing a HAT test score, with a minimum score of 60 out of 100. As the application deadline for Commonwealth Scholarships is fast approaching, all aspiring students are urged to act promptly. The last date for submission is October 17, 2023.

This remarkable initiative opens doors to quality education in the United Kingdom and serves as a testament to Pakistan’s commitment to fostering academic excellence and international collaboration.

It offers a unique chance for deserving students to realize their educational aspirations and contribute to the nation’s development.
