The Higher Education Commission (HEC) is an institution that strives to make higher education accessible to the Pakistani youth. From time to time, you would find scholarships (local and foreign) throughout the year that you could apply for.
These foreign scholarships are from the UK, USA, China, Azerbaijan, European countries, and other countries. So you can pick and choose according to the country you want to go to and the programs that the scholarships present. For instance, if you are into medical sciences, one scholarship might be better than the rest.
Most scholarships had their deadlines in December and mid-January. Commonwealth scholarship, for instance, had its deadline at the end of 2021. Meanwhile, the scholarship for Hungary was due on 15th January 2021.
