Lahore College for Women University announces 15 scholarships for girls

LAHORE: The Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) announced on Saturday that it would award “15 Malala Yousafzai scholarships” for girls from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Northern Areas.

LCWU Vice Chancellor Sabiha Mansoor said the scholarships would be awarded at the request of the LCWU Student Council. Ten scholarships will be for bachelor’s degree and five for Masters and PhD. The scholarships will include hostel accommodation. She said Malala Yousafzai had defied those who wanted to impose their nefarious agenda under the cover of religion.

“Malala pursued her education without bowing to threats. She stands as a symbol of hope for women’s empowerment through education,” she said.

Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said Malala Yousafzai was the daughter of the nation and the pride of the country and the entire nation was praying for her.

In his message on Malala Day, he said Malala Yousafzai had won laurels for Pakistan all over the world by playing a leading role at such an early age. Praying for her early recovery, he hoped she would soon return to homeland.

Hailing the United Nations decision to declare November 10 as Malala Day, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) Chairwoman Zohra Yusuf called upon the government and the people to rise to the challenge the worldwide tribute to the young girl from Swat presents them with. She stressed the need for launching efforts to realise the Millennium Development Goals on education and women’s rights.
