A scholarship programme was recently announced for thousands of non-Muslim students in the province, according to sources and a Punjab government announcement.
The Punjab government would offer stipends totaling Rs. 50,000 to students enrolled in PhD and MPhil programmes and Rs. 35,000 to those enrolled in master’s and MSc programmes.
While intermediate and matriculation students will earn stipends of Rs20,000 and Rs15,000, respectively, and students enrolling in BSc programmes will receive Rs30,000.
Students who received a passing grade in their most recent exam would be eligible for the program’s stipends. The family’s combined income, however, should not exceed Rs 35,000.
By September 29, 2022, qualified applicants must submit their applications to the Department of Human and Minorities Affairs. After the deadline, no application would be considered.
