Difference between Ehsaas Scholarship and other programmes in country

  • This programme represents three major paradigm shifts in the scholarship policy of the government. First, this is the largest-ever needs-based scholarship program. It is reserved for students from low-income families, in order to enable them to aspire for higher education. Only a very small percentage of previous scholarships given by the government/HEC were needs-based.
  • Second, it is the largest-ever national scholarship program. In the last 14 years, HEC has awarded a total of 30,000 undergraduate scholarships, while this scheme will give 50,000 scholarships, every year.
  • Third, this scholarship focuses on enhancing the earning potential of the recipients. Past scholarships were aimed at postgraduate programs, i.e., they assumed that students would pay for undergraduate education on their own. The Ehsaas scholarship funds under-graduate education, which is the surest way to enable people to rise out of poverty, and which contributes the most to income generating potential.

Funding envelop for this program

  • Annually a minimum of Rs.5 billion will be allocated to this programme.

How to apply

  • Visit official website of Higher Education Commission to apply on line.
  • Completed forms along with necessary documents can also be submitted to Financial Aid Office of the universities.
  • Do not send application directly to HEC or BISP
