TikTok announces 10,000 scholarships for Pakistan’s students:

TikTok and ed-tech startup Edkasa are collaborating with the Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) to expand the #ExamReady scholarship programme to more than 10,000 meritorious students in the province.

According to the statement, earlier this year, they established the #ExamReady scholarship programme, which will award online study grants to 18,000 deserving students from around Pakistan.

“The partnership with Sindh Education Foundation will help promote quality education across disadvantaged areas of Sindh.” 

Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) will offer scholarships to post-primary students in classes IX to XII.

The #ExamReady programme, which aimed to help millions of Pakistani students, created over 500 educational videos online covering disciplines including Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics.
