The University of Wollongong (UOW) has decided to start awarding its highly esteemed Vice-Chancellor’s Leadership Scholarships to Pakistani students as well.

In a press release, the Pakistan High Commission said that such scholarships have been introduced by an Australian university for Pakistani students for the first time ever.

He revealed that more than 27,000 Pakistani students are currently studying in different Australian institutes, with approximately 1,000 of them enrolled in the UOW.

Vice-Chancellor Patricia Davidson and Adam Gilchrist also addressed the ceremony, stating that these scholarships “will empower talented students from Pakistan to pursue their dreams and make a positive impact on the world.”
