    Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship Program

    Latest Scholarships

    The Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship Program 2021 is set to commence with the reopening of the Ehsaas Scholarship Portal on 30 September 2021.

    Students can submit their applications for the scholarship for the academic year 2021-22 through the Ehsaas Scholarship Portal till 30 November 2021.

    Since the reopening date of the Ehsaas Scholarship Portal is approaching, here are all the details you need to know about the Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship Program 2021.

    History of Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship Program
    On 4th November 2019, Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the program to provide need-based scholarships to deserving bright students across the country.

    It is the largest need-based scholarship initiative in the history of Pakistan. Under the initiative, 50,000 deserving students will receive scholarships for the next four years.

    While the Federal Government has earmarked Rs. 24 billion for the Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship Program over the next four years, 50% of the total scholarships have been reserved for girls and 2% for differently-abled students.

    It aims to support undergraduate level students who after completing FA/FSc./Intermediate are unable to pursue university education due to limited financial resources.

    Unlike previous scholarship programs that were aimed at MS or Ph.D. programs, this initiative envisions providing financial support to the students of four- and five-year undergraduate programs.

    Eligibility Criteria
    Scholarships under the Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship Program will be awarded to newly admitted students:

    • Having a family income of less than Rs. 45,000 per month.
    • Admitted on merit only. Merit here means that the student has fulfilled the admission criteria of the institution in which he/she intends to study.
    • Enrolled in the undergraduate degree programs recognized by the HEC.
    • Falling under the age limit set by the institution’s regulations, i.e., the maximum age of the eligibility for the scholarship is the same as the maximum age for applying for admission in undergraduate programs at the HEI.

    Who Cannot Apply?
    A student is ineligible if they are:

    • Availing of any other scholarship or continuous grant.
    • Enrolled in distant learning programs and affiliated colleges (both public/private).
