National Forum for Environment & Health (NFEH) has awarded National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative “Impact through Education”
Deputy Speaker National Assembly, Qasim Khan Suri honoured the ceremony as chief guest. Dr Nassar Ikram, Pro-Rector RIC NUST, received the award on behalf of the university.
NUST offers need-based scholarships to the deserving yet financially challenged students from across Pakistan under its flagship NUST Endowment for Educational Development (NEED) initiative. NUST ensures that students from financially challenged backgrounds, who qualify on merit for admission at the university, are provided financial aid options to pursue their aspirations. Since 2015, NUST has been able to extend this impact to more than 1500 students and counting. The ever-growing willingness and support of the corporate sector is one of the defining factors that have accelerated the programme, thus creating more opportunities for academically sound students from underprivileged backgrounds to pursue quality education at NUST.
