Scholarship Program for Non-Muslim Students

The Government of Punjab has recently launched a scholarship program for deserving non-Muslim students studying in government institutions in Punjab. The initiative aims to empower regular students to pursue their academic goals and contribute positively to society. The program is open to applicants who have a Punjab domicile, belong to minority communities such as Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, or other, and are enrolled in matric to Ph.D. level programs with a minimum of 40% marks in their most recent annual examination.

Successful applicants will be awarded annual scholarships of up to Rs. 50,000 if they are enrolled in professional-level programs such as MBBS, DVM, BDS, BSc (English), BSc (Nursing), Pharm-D, Ph.D., or equivalent. Those pursuing postgraduate programs or undergraduate programs will receive Rs. 35,000 or Rs. 30,000 per annum, respectively.

Interested applicants can obtain application forms from the office of the Section Officer or download them from the website of the Department of Human Rights and Minority Affairs, Punjab. Applicants must submit attested copies of their domicile, passport-size photos, Computerized National Identity Cards (CNIC) of their father/guardian, educational certificates, and result cards attested by a Grade 17 officer or above. In addition, heads of the educational institutions where the applicants are currently enrolled have been instructed to verify the documents of the student’s guardian/parent.

The deadline for submission of applications is May 12, 2023, and qualified non-Muslim students studying in government institutions in Punjab are urged to take advantage of this chance.
