Dr. Farooq Ahmed, an expatriate Old Ravian, has donated rupees two million
to the Government College University Lahore Endowment Fund Trust (GCU-EFT)
for the scholarships of deserving students.
Vice Chancellor, and Chairman GCU-EFT, Prof. Dr. Asghar Zaidi and GCU-EFT
Executive Committee President Mr. Iqbal Z. Ahmed expressed gratitude to Dr.
Farooq Ahmed, saying that the University would initiate two perpetual
golden scholarships from his generous donation. "Each golden scholarship
will cover university fee and hostel expenses of one student every year,"
Prof. Zaidi said.
Prof. Zaidi added that this was the second donation of rupees two million
from Dr. Farooq Ahmed, and now his total valuable contribution to the trust
stood at four million rupees.
The Vice Chancellor hoped that this donation will inspire other Old Ravians
as well because this is the most exemplary way to pay back the debt of alma
mater and support the financially-challenged students.
