Prime Minister’s Special Assistant (SAPM) Dr Sania Aziz on Thursday announced an extension in the deadline for submitting applications for undergraduate scholarships for the year 2020-21 to Nov 30.
Earlier October 30 was the last date for submission of online scholarship applications.
However, given the Covid-19 delays in the admission process at several public sector universities in the country, the last date for Ehsaas scholarship applications has just been revised.
The decision has been taken to facilitate the maximum number of fresh undergraduate students to apply for this scholarship opportunity. Since the online application portal reopened on Sep 5, 2020 as many as 30,000 applications have been received in the system so far.
The Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship is a flagship programme of the present government with an objective to provide scholarships to financially challenged students for the duration of their studies. 125 public sector universities recognized by the Higher Education Commission are part of this initiative.
The Ehsaas undergraduate Scholarships are targeted at students from low income families (less than Rs 45,000 a month) and marginalized regions to assist them in their undergraduate studies. Eligible students can apply through an online portal: https://ehsaas.hec.gov.pk/.
