ISLAMABAD - The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has announced Canadian scholarships opportunities for Pakistani, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) students for the year 2020-2021 in higher studies.

Therefore, HEC encouraged Pakistani students to explore study opportunities in Canada which may further be helpful in immigration, the added.
The sources said that this opportunity is being provided with an endeavour of the Canadian government in order to facilitate Pakistani students aspiring to study in Canada.
