He spoke on how IBA continued striving to provide an enabling environment, which was conducive to scholarship and research. Dr Husain detailed the IBA Student Scholarship programme for needy students from rural areas. The IBA offers financial assistance to deserving students in the form of financial assistance and loans. No applicant who qualifies the admission test and fulfills other requirements is refused admission because of inability to afford the costs of the programmes at the Institute. Scholarship is offered to eligible applicants who have been assessed to be needy. This is in the form of a ‘Scholarship Package’, which is designed based on the recognition that an education in the Institute is a partnership involving the student, his/her family and the Institute. He toured the training facilities at old Custom House and welcomed the possibility of future collaborations between Pakistan Customs and IBA Karachi.
