Sindh govt. team conducts interviews of 700 SU candidates, selects 300 contenders for scholarships under SEEF
Interviews of 700 Sindh University candidates were conducted for provision of 300 scholarships under Sindh Educational Endowment Fund (SEEF) by a team of the provincial department of education & literacy and the final list of the successful candidates were handed over to the Students Financial Aid Office for disbursement of cheques.
A team of the provincial education department reached Sindh University and completed the interviews of 700 candidates within two days. It selected the 300 male and female students for the scholarships solely on merit.
After completing the interviews, the members of the Sindh Government's Interviews Committee called on the Vice-Chancellor Professor (Meritorious) Dr. Muhammad Siddique Kalhoro, in which the VC asked them to recommend an increase in the scholarship slots for the students of the University of Sindh.
He said that a large number of students studying at the University of Sindh campuses belonged to rural areas of the province, whose financial resources were very limited and they came from a very humble monetary background, adding that consequently, there was a need to increase the scholarship slots for them.
Sindh Education Department officials assured the Vice-Chancellor that they will try to persuade the concerned authorities to increase the scholarship slots from 300 to 500 next year.
Appreciating the transparent system of the Students Financial Aid Office (SFAO) and the efforts of Director Prof. Dr. Mushtaque Ali Jariko, Officer Qamar Nangraj and their team, they said that the distribution of scholarships in the University of Sindh was being done in a very apparent manner based on merit.
It should be noted that the University of Sindh used to get only 50 slots of scholarships under the Sindh Educational Endowment Fund in the past, but due to the constant correspondence and efforts taken by the Vice-Chancellor, the scholarship slots have been increased to 300 from the current fiscal year.
