|OSAF has been really very helpful throughout my stay at FAST. It has always assisted deserving students when they had no hope to pursue their education. It has uplifted our morale, generated opportunities and aided students whenever possible. It has created hope in the needy and deserving students in achieving goals for themselves and their country. I wish OSAF best of luck in the future.||Doing a decent job for about 4 years|
|OFA has been great in terms of its end benefit, but a few things need to be improved. Please dont ask me why i didnt attend last interview sessions. I can not just express my embarrassment over my attitude towards OSAF. I am writing this email because I want to do something for OSAF and OFA (though practically I havent done anything so far).
1. I was in need of money in my early semesters, FAST was helpful but they had limits. After interviews, I found this body caring and consulting. I was impressed with a few decent and noble interviewers. Anyway, I was helped. It wasnt what I was expecting but it was still handy at that time.
2. Then, when I matured in university, between 2003 and 2005, OSAF wasnt very active but OFA remained. I was happy. 3. Overall, as a student and alumini, I highly respect OFA.
A few things need to be implemented:
1. Interviews need to evaluate candidates more critically. I have the feeling and my friends agree with me that OFA interviewers are more positive than needed :) If you have no objection, I will inshaAllah be part of next interviews.
2. Funds raising from abroad should be increased. Local people are important but they are not that interested. We can introduce some technology, like pay by credit cards, paypal etc.

|I am an undergraduate student of FAST. I never be a part of FAST if there is no OSAF. OSAF is an organization that is helping the students those cannot afford such a high fee of this university.Iit is an organization consisting of FASTians (old students) having the pain for every poor student those want to study but have no fee to pay. It is providing finincial assistance to poor students. I cannot forget the blessings of OSAF. May OSAF makes a progress by day & night. OSAF is Great.||He is looking for a decent job these days|
|My experience with OSAF was excellent. As OSAF helped me at the time when I was disappointed from everywhere and OSAF helped me, as initially FAST approved half fee loan for me and rest of my fee was impossible for me to pay and that time was a question for my stay at FAST and from that time till my graduation OSAF arranged rest of the fee for me. Thanks OSAF for your great help.||Doing a good job now|
|The university-provided FA (financial assistance) was the only hope for someone like me, from a middle-class background to complete my degree at FAST-NUCES. I was lucky enough to get 50% of my tuition fee as loan from the university. But then came a time when I could not afford the rest of the dues. I was referred to OSAF by an alumnus. OSAF conducts interviews of the needy students who apply for financial assiastance and helps them as per their limited fundings. I have found the process of OSAF to be highly transparent and well managed. I urge every alumnus of FAST and others who can to help OSAF raise funds which will in turn help many needy students at FAST-NUCES to complete their degrees.||He is working at a top-IT company for about 4 years|
|AoA, I still remember, in 5h/6th semester I applied for the OSAF scholarship and also got. Moreover, You also give me some additional money which i refunded after getting Job. My experience with OSAF was extremely wonderful. OSAF provided me amount at that critical time when I was not in the situation to pay my study expenses. And no doubt, there was not any intention behind giving me amount but it solely was for noble cause. I really appreciate the effort of OSAF & much thankful to you as well.
