The scholarship holds a master's degree with a master's degree, master's degree and doctoral degree. Its goal is to create highly qualified human resources in all areas of study taught at the advanced level of local universities. These local qualified scholars and researchers will enhance not only private universities, but also public R & D potential and strengthen local industry sectors.

With the launch of the 5000 HEC Aboriginal Scholarship, the research culture of public and private universities was developed in accordance with international norms / standards. The project focuses on social sciences, humanities and life sciences, as well as various fields belonging to all areas of science and technology. To strengthen research facilities in this field, the Higher Education Commission has funded the establishment of laboratories in many departments and universities. This has made a tremendous change in the research culture of Pakistani universities.

HEC focused on indigenous scholarships. This is because local rain researchers are studying national issues of national importance. Therefore, their research is expected to be directly related to Pakistan's growth and socio-economic development.

In addition, the scheme not only facilitates the research of HEC scholars by funding universities to upgrade research facilities, especially small laboratory equipment, chemicals, IT equipment, etc., but also departments date the laboratory.
