To aid students from the minority population financially, the Punjab government has created a scholarship scheme for thousands of non-Muslim students throughout the province.
Further information reveals that students enrolling in BS and BSc programs will earn a stipend of Rs. 30,000, while those pursuing intermediate and matriculation programs will receive stipends of Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 15,000, respectively.
The fact that non-Muslim students who completed their final exam with a score of fifty percent or higher and qualified for stipends must be noted. However, the total income of their household cannot exceed Rs 35,000.
Before or on September 29, 2022, non-Muslim students in Punjab may submit their applications to the Department of Human and Minorities Affairs. No application received after the deadline will be considered.
It is noteworthy that the provincial government of Sindh recently awarded 2,875 minority students in the province scholarships totaling Rs. 28.125 million and suggested doubling the amount allotted for scholarships.
