I, Muhammad Hasan Ashraf, am from NED UNIVERSITY OF ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY, in second year MECHANICAL ENGINEERING department. I have been getting scholarship from NED SCHOLAR'S from last 2 years.
For me this is not just a financial support but also a great experience of being in touch with intellectual minded people.
The financial support really helped me to smoothly continue my studies whereas the socially and technical support by means of different workshops, online presentations and online courses reinforced my speaking and communication skills and raise my knowledge.
The thing which make this scholarship different from other scholarships is the effective and frequent communication between students and organization.
In near future, Insha-Allah, I would be true representative of NED SCHOLARS and it would be great honor to be a part of NED SCHOLARS and help other students.
I am really thankful to the NED Scholars Scholarship for all the support, contribution and time. The efforts by the mentors of this scholarship really deserve the appreciation. I would like to thank again the NED Scholars for guiding me right way.

NED Scholars is a light of hope and motivation in darkness. It is a reliable helping hand for students with high aims but scarce resources. This organization does not seek to make students dependent on the monetary help; rather, along with financial assistance, it trains and assists them through individualized mentorship program and by conducting training sessions on diverse scopes of knowledge. It facilitates students of NED, who are potential engineers of tomorrow, in grooming to become self-reliant and motivated individuals.

I am pursuing a BE degree program in Food Engineering at NED University of Engineering and Technology and is a beneficiary of NED Scholars Scholarship since 2013. As Pakistan houses a growing food industry, I believed that this field would open up multiple horizons of learning and professional success when I selected this program. Unfortunately, when the program officially began, I was disappointed to know that my department has under-developed faculty with no counselor to seek help from. At this time, it was NED Scholars who gave me a boost by providing assistance, through a mentor in the relevant field, who not only supported me academically, but also led me to gain professional and industrial exposure. It has indeed served as a valuable foundation stone for my future endeavors.

Thank you NED Scholars!
Regards,
Sabina Anwer Ali

My name is Arooba Rasheed and i am a final year student of Materials Engineering at NEDUET. I am receiving this scholarship from 2013. This scholarship not only supports the students financially but technically and socially as well. This scholarship was the hope for me in the dark. The financial support really helped me to smoothly continue my studies whereas the socilal and technical support by means of different workshops, online presentations and online courses reinforced my speaking and communication skills and raise my knowledge.
By the assistance of this alumni I did internship in PIA, the scholars of this alumni gave us the free hand to ask for any support and guidance. Through the support of my mentor Dr. Muhammad Sohail i have maintained my academics to the highest CGPA in my level i.e. 3.7..
I am really thankful to the NED Scholars Scholarship for all the support, contribution and time. The efforts by the mentors of this scholarship really deserve the appreciation. I would like to thank the NED Scholars for serving us.

Being associated with Ned scholars from the binging I have seen it grow . Ned scholars does not only provide scholarships , it also provide support to students through mentoring, seminars and trainings, as well as helping students in finding internships. Needy students are provided with laptops,stipends and other kind of family support. In fact it is a one stop shop for students who want to excel in STEM education and need help.
I would like to to congratulate all the recipients of scholarship and would like to thank everyone who contributed and supported Ned scholars.
Please support STEM education. It is a proud moment for us that our scholars are now very successful professionals in there field and are able to support others, like they were supported by Ned scholars.

The urge and enthusiasm of hunting true talent throughout NED University, cultivating that true talent throughout the student's journey and then transforming it into a complete successful independent identity which is now ready to become another helping hand for another emerging talent in the community, are just some of the many exceptional qualities possessed by NED Scholars. They have infrastructural level struggles for this purpose and they pursue these goals by conducting seminars, mentor-ship programs and highly skilled training on practical subjects like interview guides, OOPs and Six Sigma Certifications. I'm a proud beneficiary of this honored non-profit organization.

Tabish Anis

I was one of the recipient of their scholarship. It was with their tremendous support that trained me to a successful engineer. I lost my father when I was only 12 years old. My mom raised me by teaching in a local muhalla school. It was NED SCHOLARS scholarship (at that time it was called NED Alumni MECH 80-81 scholarship) that helped me to pay my fee. I also got support with laptop and several trainings in various engineering tools. Thank you all especially Dr Sohail. It would be very difficult to make through NED without their support.

I have been witnessing the work of NED Scholars for past many years and have seen this Organization change many lives. One great feature is that they don't just award the scholarship but hold the hands of students till graduation helping out with academic and personal issues. The net work supports kids to find internships as well. Not your ordinary non profit org but a real helping hand! Keep up the good work guys

The wonderful way of paying back. I have been associated with this organization for quite few years. Their support to the needy and deserving is commendable. Besides monetary help, providing mentorship, arranging seminars/webinars are few to list down. Remarkable growth in preparing world class scholars proves untiring efforts of organizers and confidence of supporters.
