At least, 50% scholarships have been reserved for female students. Two per cent scholarships will be exclusively awarded to students with disabilities

    How will the tuition fee and stipend be paid? 

    The tuition will be paid directly to the University whereas the living stipend will be paid in the bank account of the student after necessary verifications 

    How will transparency be ensured

    Details of the scholarships will be available on the Ehsaas as well as HEC web-portals. 

    How is this different from other Scholarship programmes running in the 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. 


    What is the funding envelope for this program 

    Annually, a minimum of Rs. 5 billion will be allocated for the programme.
