Since the families of overseas Pakistanis are scattered throughout the country and not concentrated in selective area only therefore, OPF is shifting its focus from investing huge funds on establishment of new educational institutions to utilize the same funds for the direct benefits of children / spouse of overseas Pakistanis by providing them financial assistance in terms of scholarships.
In order to facilitate the children / spouse of overseas Pakistanis to pursue their education in professional colleges/universities, OPF has introduced Overseas Pakistanis Education Fund (OPEF). Under this program, scholarship on annual basis is awarded to children and spouse of overseas Pakistanis studying in Intermediate to Master/MS level courses in Pakistan.
Since, 2018 scholarship amounting to Rs.32.47 Million has been distributed amongst the children/spouse of overseas Pakistanis.
In FY 2021-2022 budget an amount of Rs.15 Million is allocated for award of scholarship to children/spouse of overseas Pakistanis.
