ISLAMABAD – students in the Baluchistan and Tribal regions will receive free mathematics training at the Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) in the fall of 2019 until September 20.
The university has declared that it will provide free levels of education to people from Baluchistan and tribal areas (formerly FATA).
It aimed to ensure access to education for marginalized and less developed areas without gaining financial benefits.
Eligible students can contact the University District Office to guide them through the admissions process and get help.
Vice-president Professor Zia-Ul-Qayyum hoped that people in the area could take advantage of this facility. The university added that it is working to expand quality education at the doorstep.
The university already offers free education to underprivileged communities, including disabled people, prisoners, dropout girls and transgender groups.
In addition, tuition was waived for internally displaced people (IDPs) in tribal areas who were struggling with anti-terrorism operations.
AIOU provided a fee concession in recent years to record a large number of students and to encourage a policy that guarantees education as ALL.
In fiscal year 2018-19, 20,466 beneficiaries received commission concessions under the university's scholarship scheme, the highest in AIOU's history.
The number of beneficiaries during that period was 19,226.
During a recent academic conference, the Vice President announced that AIOU would no longer be constrained to meet the educational needs of more than 1.4 million students annually through the distance education system.
We have several scholarships, which allow qualified students to continue their future studies.
As a matter of policy, if a student or his or her parent's annual income is less than Rs 3, 60,000, he or she may apply for a commission discount in certain programs under the scholarship scheme through their local office.
Each student who wants must meet certain criteria. In the case of a fee charge, it is finally considered and approved by the evaluation committee, and is set at the local level for this purpose.
