SANA Dr. Feroze Ahmed Memorial Educational Scholarships Program A Merit/Income Based Financial Assistance for Sindhi Students
We may be thousands of miles away from Sindh, but the SANA community always tries to contribute for the benefits of Sindh and the Sindhi folks. Understanding the difficult times faced by most of Sindhi families in providing higher education, SANA awards every year several scholarships to the needy and meritorious students in Sindh.
In 1998, Sindhi Association of North America (SANA) established an educational fund to pay tribute to late Dr. Feroz Ahmed, a prominent Sindhi social scientist and educationist. Through Dr. Feroz Ahmed Memorial Educational Fund (FAME Fund), SANA provides financial assistance in the form of scholarships to exceptional Sindhi students in their pursuit of undergraduate and post graduate studies at any university in Pakistan.
Based on the collection of funds, each year SANA awards 50 to 80 scholarships to meritorious and needy Sindhi students in Sindh. This year, that is, the academic year 2012-2013, the scholarships are being awarded through the following programs:
Dr. Nabi Bux Baloach Scholarships for PhD students – 2 scholarships each $1000
Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Sukkur – 4 Scholarships each $500
Students of Medical Universities and Colleges – 16 Scholarships each $250
Mehran University of Engineering and Technology – 16 Scholarships each $250
Undergraduate Studies in Social Sciences and Humanities - 10 Scholarships $250.00 each.
Students of Nursing Colleges and Pharmaceutical Colleges – 6 Scholarships $250.00 each
Our success in managing this scholarships program is only based on the appreciation, encouragement and support of SANA community in USA. Please come forward and show your support by donating for this noble cause.
We wish you and your family a very pleasant stay at the convention
