We are delighted to present to you the 18 Akademos Scholars for the academic year 2022-2023. We received a total of 92 applications this year. A majority of the applicants were girls. The scholars were selected through 30 hours of rigorous interview and assessment of 42 applicants that gave due consideration to both their academic record and compelling circumstances – not just one.
Among the scholars are aspiring engineers, doctors, journalists and social activists, all of whom hail from working class families in both Marriabad and Hazara Town, Quetta.

We thank our partners in Quetta – Mohammad Mehdi of Ummat, Mohammad Hadi of Champion Academy and our former scholars, Shamsia and Sughra, for helping us organise and conduct these interviews.We thank our supporters and donors, and wish the scholars endurance, hard-work and a bright future ahead.
