Old Ravian Dr. Farooq Ahmed donates Rs. 2M to GCU-EFT

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.
