Every year, Google awards 15,000 scholarships to young people in Pakistan

According to The News, the US-based global IT corporation Google has offered 15,000 annual scholarships to capable young people from Pakistan in an effort to transform that nation’s very promising IT sector.

According to Senator Dr. Afnanullah Khan, a member of the Senate’s Standing Committee on Information Technology, “the American tech giant wants to invest $3.5 million in Pakistan” (IT).

In a similar vein, he said that the sale of 5G licenses would generate billions of dollars in foreign exchange while also attracting significant venture capital investment in the private sector. The senator claimed that Pakistan’s IT exports could easily reach $10 billion in the following few years with only a little planning.
