ISLAMABAD (APP) – The Higher Education Commission (HEC) Wednesday extended the last date for submission of application for Indigenous PhD Fellowship Programme till December 21.

The purpose of extension in date is to facilitate the applicants, particularly those belonging to far-flung areas abd could not apply due to power loadshedding and internet issues, said a press release issued here.

The Indigenous PhD Programme provides equal opportunities to aspiring scholars and researchers even in less privileged areas.

This is the last time applicants are being facilitated and after the new deadline expires, any incomplete online application form will not be entertained for further processing.
