The Pakistan Cricket Board and Beaconhouse, Pakistan’s largest network of private educational institutes, have entered a three-year partnership for the PCB Pathway Scholarship Programme. Through this alliance, Beaconhouse will provide 100 academic scholarships annually to the players enrolled in PCB’s Pathway Programmes.

The initiative is aimed towards the education and development of the future stars of Pakistan cricket who will be provided access to free education at the Beaconhouse campuses across the country enabling them to ultimately become well rounded professional cricketers.

The partnership will provide invaluable support to PCB’s mission of providing young players from all socio-economic backgrounds the necessary education to reach their full potential of becoming wholesome individuals through the creation of pathways from PCB’s entry-level programmes, schools and clubs to representative competitions leading up to the national team.

The initiative will also help trigger the sustainability of school cricket and will consequently open up the supply chain of cricketing talent in the country, whilst also increasing the talent pools for junior cricket leagues.

PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja: “The PCB Pathway Programme has the potential to change the fortunes of Pakistan cricket. The investment we have made for our upcoming stars will reap rich rewards in the years to come. The partnership with Beaconhouse is another major milestone in our quest of providing a holistic platform to our players for their cricketing and educational needs and requirements.

“We hope to make them well-rounded ambassadors for Pakistan who can represent the country at international platforms with dignity and pride.

“The partnership will also provide comfort to the parents and families of the players involved in the PCB Pathway Programme as the players will have quality education in tandem with their cricket coaching and training, it is an investment that will positively shape the lives of the players.”

Beaconhouse strongly promotes sports at all its schools and believes in encouraging young people to explore their unique interests. Through this partnership, we hope to offer talented young cricketers the opportunity to pursue their passion and talent for cricket while also becoming accomplished individuals, equipped to take on the unique challenge of becoming future ambassadors of Pakistan.”
