A Merit/Income Based Financial Assistance for Sindhi Students
SANA simply helps them to achieve their dream
SANA Dr. Feroz Ahmed Memorial Educational (FAME) Fund Scholarship Program was developed to provide a merit/Income based financial assistance to Sindhi students who are obtaining education in various universities and colleges in Pakistan. In this way SANA helps them to achieve their educational dreams.
Understanding the difficult times faced by most of Sindhi families in providing higher education to their children, SANA awards every year several scholarships to the needy and meritorious students.
In 1998, paying tribute to late Dr. Feroz Ahmed, a prominent Sindhi social scientist and educationist, SANA established an educational fund, that is, Dr. Feroz Ahmed Memorial Educational Fund (FAME Fund).
Based on the donations received every year from SANA Community in North America, each year SANA awards several scholarships to meritorious and needy Sindhi students.
During the academic year 2016-17, SANA will award 58 scholarships through the following institutes:
- Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Sukkur – 8 Scholarships each $1000
- Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET) Jamshoro– 16 Scholarships each $300.
- Sukkur IBA Community Colleges– 12 Scholarships, each $500
- Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur, Dept. of Business Administration – 12 Scholarships each $300
- Liaqat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS), Jamshoro – 12 scholarships each $300.
With view of above 5 scholarship programs for the academic year 2016 – 2017, total 58 SANA FAME Scholarships will be awarded with total budget of $25,000.
SANA FAME Scholarship Committee manages the scholarship program where as the SANA Treasurer collects, manages and disburses funds as per selection/instructions of SANA FAME Scholarship Committee. The selection of applicants is made strictly on the basis of merit + family income.
In the shape of SANA FAME Scholarships, the SANA Community in North America sincerely tries to make positive difference in the life of our Sindhi students who, in a very difficult situation including financial hardships, are struggling to obtain higher education in Sindh. Our contribution to ease their financial hardship may be considered small, but, it is our appreciation of their hard work in the form of Scholarships award, makes big difference.
