Quaid-I-Azam Alumni Association has launched a scholarship program for flood-affected students of the country.

During a consultative session hosted by Dr Abdul Basit President Quaid-I-Azam Alumni Association (QAUAU), it was decided that like 2010 floods, in close coordination with the QAU administration, a special scholarship program will be launched for ensuring the continuation of the study of flood-affected students enrolled at QAU which will cover tuition fee, hostel and mess dues.

The participants showed deep sadness and grief over the human and financial losses in the flood-affected areas. They also appreciated the individual and collective efforts and active participation of the Quaidians, old students of QAU Islamabad in relief activities and ration distribution among the flood-affected people in various parts of the country.

After detailed deliberations, it was unanimously decided to facilitate the flood-affected students through the provision of scholarships so that their ongoing studies may not suffer due to any financial issues. During the meeting, it was also apprised that being a federal university, QAU Islamabad enrols students across Pakistan as per federal government quota policy.

As the recent monsoon rains and floods have affected more than one-third area of Pakistan, many enrolled and new QAU students have also been severely affected. According to the initial data gathered, hundreds of students were affected.

It is the responsibility of the federal government and concerned stakeholders to ensure the continuation of studies of these affected students. It was also resolved that on the same pattern of scholarships awarded by the alumni in 2010, a transparent mechanism will be developed for the award of scholarships.
