ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
The recently announced “Arshad Sharif Endowment Fund” will provide two perpetual free seats for first-generation Mass Communication students seeking admission at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST).
NUST has lauded the significant donation by the family of the late Arshad Sharif – a renowned Pakistani journalist, writer, and television news anchor.
The donation is in the name of the ‘Arshad Sharif Endowment Fund’ and will enable two perpetual free seats for first-generation Mass Communication students struggling to fund their education at NUST.
The endowment seat will serve as a memorial tribute to Sharif’s significant contribution to journalism and to keep the legacy of his noteworthy work alive.
Sharif’s specialisation in investigative journalism and his coverage of many political events in the country for national and international news organisations made him a prominent figure in the field.
He was recognised for his outstanding contributions to reporting and journalism when he was awarded the Pride of Performance by President Arif Alvi on March 23, 2019.
