To fund the Allama Iqbal Scholarship Program for Afghan students, the proposal asked the government to set aside Rs. 1.5 billion. In addition, the Fulbright scholarship program has been proposed for Rs. 1 billion.

There has also been talk of creating a joint research center between Pakistan and China at Quaid-e-Azam University. The proposal makes it clear that funding for educational opportunities for Baloch and FATA students should be included in the budget.
