Zong Launched Scholarship Program for UET Students


ZONG has launched ZONG Scholarship Program by signing a MoU with University of Engineering and Technology, to fund the education of students annually for higher studies in Computer Sciences, Engineering and Sciences.

The ZONG Scholarship Program will enable talented, deserving young people to acquire high quality education from renowned educational institutions in the country.

The Scholarship Program is aimed at assisting students seeking admissions in the disciplines of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Sciences & Engineering to the University for the academic year commencing in 2009. ZONG intends to provide scholarships in the above-mentioned disciplines, to cover various educational expenses like registration fees, tuition, laboratory fees, internship fees, study materials, accommodation costs and others.

Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Zafar Usmani, Chief Operating Officer, ZONG said that we are deeply committed to promoting higher education in Pakistan as a caring corporate citizen and look forward to working with organizations like UET to make this Program more successful. “ZONG will support UET’s talented and needy students meeting the agreed scholarship criteria set out by both the organizations. The company will also facilitate  counselling services for engineering students in the field of telecommunications in Pakistan as well as abroad.” He further added.

Lt. Gen (Retd) Muhammad Akram Khan, Vice Chancellor, UET appreciated the initiative taken by ZONG for the support of higher education in Pakistan.

“We are excited about this Scholarship Program of ZONG, a company which we regard very highly, as it has consistently been supporting youth by introducing different programs. We are confident that this partnership will truly benefit the deserving students, as it offers tremendous convenience and benefits to the students.”

The emphasis of the ZONG Scholarship will be to financially support the talented students to motivate and channelise their energies towards scientific and technological research. For three years that this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is in effect, up to 60 students will receive scholarships under the Program.

ZONG and UET have founded a Steering Committee comprising representatives of ZONG and the UET that will convene periodically to evaluate and serve as an advisory body with regard to the application of this MOU.

In order to keep students updated, ZONG would launch a campus news and music radio channel which would be accessible to students through their ZONG SIMs. ZONG would also provide Location Based Charging solution for the GPRS / voice to the UET to facilitate student’s access to the internet and their access to the faculty members and fellow students for exchanging notes.

  • Btw which UET ? Taxila…Lahore or Peshawar? I was trying to find that but it is not mentioned. May be some people think it is only in Lahore :P 2nd thing is that due to hypocrisy in these universities very few deserving students get the scholorships and who are good in TC or in good terms with Dean /Director Finance get it easily. This is my own experience.

  • why zong is providing scholorships and other facilities to UET only, there are other good universities in pakistan aswell, like NUST LUMS FAST GIKI, y just UET???

  • yar every one knows that UET is the best….no univ can compete with UET lhr OR UET TAXILA…ur cream of gud students go there…u know the fact..while those students who are not able to get admission in UET then apply for nust or fast..everyone wants to be in UET
