A scholarship system for worthwhile non-Muslim students is being offered by the Punjab government.
The scholarship program will give regular students the tools they need to succeed academically and make a meaningful impact on society. By 12 May 2023, interested candidates can submit their applications.
Candidates must live in Punjab, be members of a minority group like the Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, or another, be enrolled in matric through doctoral-level programs, and have received at least 40% on their most recent yearly exams in order to be eligible.
If the selected candidates are enrolled in graduate-level programs like the MBBS, DVM, BDS, BSc (English), BSc (Nursing), Pharm-D, Ph.D., or equivalent, they will get annual scholarships worth Rs. 50,000.
Postgraduate students enrolled in MA, MSc, M.Com, MCS/MBA, M.Phil, LLM, or programs of equal standing will get Rs. 35,000 annually. Undergraduates enrolled in BA, BSc, BBA, B.com, or programs of equal standing will get Rs. 30,000 annually.
The application forms are available at the Section Officer’s office or online at the Punjab Department of Human Rights and Minority Affairs website.
A Grade 17 officer or higher must attest copies of the applicant’s birth certificate, Computerized National Identity Cards (CNIC), father or guardian, educational records, and result cards or equivalents. Additionally, applicants must submit passport-size pictures. The scholarship advertisement in different newspapers on photocopies is also allowed.
In addition, the management of the educational institutions where students are currently enrolled have been told to confirm the legitimacy of the guardian/parent’s paperwork. A certificate of attestation should be requested from the head of each institution’s affiliated religion.
All eligible non-Muslim students enrolled in government institutions in Punjab are advised to apply as soon as possible because the deadline is quickly approaching.
