How to Apply for Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship Program

Today, the government of Pakistan has launched Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarships Program which is the largest undergraduate scholarship program in the history of Pakistan. It is a major initiative to enhance access to higher education. The government wishes that no student is deprived of education because of financial problems. Ehsaas Scholarship Program is for talented 50,000 annual scholarships that are offered to the deserving students who get admission on merit basis in the public sector universities.
Earlier most of the scholarships were awarded to the masters and Ph.D. students. Only 29,000 undergraduate scholarships were offered in the whole period of the previous 15 years. And now about fifty thousand scholarships will be available each year.  The best thing about this scheme is that it is for those students who are at the initial level of their higher studies just after passing the intermediate exams.
