From the small village of Tharparkar to Cornell University,
My journey was filled with endless challenges and struggles. When I arrived at Habib University,I faced a lot of difficulties adjusting to life away from home. Yet it was the support extended to me by my colleagues, faculty, and staff that encouraged me to continue pursuing my passion and explore numerous prestigious opportunities.
If you are a woman, and also disenfranchised then besides your education you do not have any other privilege that can take you forward in life. I am grateful to Habib’s Moshineen for providing me the wonderful chance to study at Habib.
Thanks to HU Mohsineen, I am the first female undergraduate student from my family to pursue an Engineering Degree. But I will not be the last one.
I am immensely grateful to Habib University’s truly world-class faculty, especially professors such as Dr. Shama Dossa and Dr. Mohammad Moeini-Feizabadi, for providing ample opportunities to grow beyond our comfort zones and for inculcating the art of critical thinking in me.
The BS in Electrical Engineering at Habib University is a rigorous program as it explores the breadth of engineering and science disciplines ranging from Mechanical, Electronics, and Power Engineering to Physical and Computer Sciences.
The Yohsin Scholarship stands on the core philosophy of the University that entails that every human being’s worth is in their “Yohsin.” Derived from the quote of Hazrat Ali A.S., Yohsin encompasses a worldview where an individual’s worth is based on their technical expertise and positive contribution to the world around them.
The scholarship is for students who exemplify the Yohsin philosophy while maintaining an outstanding academic record. Your contribution to the Yohsin scholarship will ensure that students with an excellent contribution to society have the opportunity to attain a world-class education.

Supporting General Financial Aid provides an ideal opportunity to help students from all social backgrounds, including those who are not eligible for receiving support through religious giving or do not qualify for Habib university scholarships.
Many of these students represent families where no one before them has had the opportunity to attain higher education. By giving a gift of your choice, you can make a lasting difference in the lives of these students, encourage pluralism and promote diversity.
Gender inequality continues to be a significant concern for Pakistan. According to the latest Global Gender Index , Pakistan ranks 135 out of 156 countries for educational attainment.
