Women University Mardan has embarked on an aspiring mission of providing financial aid to the needy and talented students. According to a report launched by the Ministry of Planning, Development and Reform Pakistan (2015-2016), nearly 39% of Pakistanis live in multidimensional poverty, with the highest rates of poverty in FATA and Balochistan. Due to the high rate of poverty, most of the brilliant students are unable to pursue higher education and compete with the global trends. In this connection, financial assistance through various scholarship schemes would be a great effort to cope with the challenges of the monetary constraints.
The mission of the Scholarship Committee Women University Mardan (SCWUM) is to provide University Students with the timely information of various scholarships launched by the University (need and merit based) as well as those by the external funding agencies. Moreover, the SCWUM provides all possible assistance in understanding procedures to access and apply for various funding opportunities.
