Women University Mardan Scholarships
Scholarship Committee Women University Mardan (SCWUM)
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.
At present Women University Mardan is offering following scholarships for the students:
Mora scholarships are being provided by Zakat Funds by Ministry of Religious Affairs through recommendation of District Zakat and Usher Office, Mardan. These scholarships are providing a support to needy and poor students.
Scholarship offered by Diya Foundation Pakistan covers tuition fee and other miscellaneous expenses of students. Students have been offered to apply for this scholarship scheme which will greatly enhance their chances and hope to pursue education smoothly and satisfactorily.
Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal (PBM) provides the financial assistance only to the deserving students of Govt. Educational Institution and some specific amount is also given for the boarding. The scholarships are open throughout the year and are granted on first come first get basis.
Women University Mardan offers a rebate on tuition fee component for the siblings of current students. The aim of this scheme is to encourage the community towards education in spite of the financial constraints.
These scholarships are offered to talented and meritorious students who otherwise find it hard to pay their tuition fee and other expenses pertaining to undergraduate or graduate level studies. These scholarships are being offered purely upon merit criteria and need assessment survey.
