Advanced Merit Scholarship

Every year Bahria attracts the brightest pool of students. In order to ensure that the most talented students enter our gates, we have introduced our advanced merit program. Freshmen who have topped their respective Boards will be awarded this scholarship which will entail full tuition fee waiver for the first semester. However, continuation of this in the subsequent semesters will require the student to achieve a GPA of at least 3.75.

  • For encouraging the students to achieve and maintain good academic record, Merit Scholarships are offered to the outstanding students of the Bahria University. All students achieving GPA of 4.0 in Semester Examination will be awarded Merit Scholarship equal to 50% of Tuition Fee of the following semester. If there is no student with GPA of 4.0, then the top scorer obtaining a GPA of at least 3.75 will be awarded the same Scholarship. In case of a tie, the student with the higher percentage will get the Scholarship. In case of double tie, all the students will be awarded the Scholarship.
  • If there is no student with a GPA of 3.75 then the top scoring student with a minimum GPA of 3.50 will be awarded this Scholarship equal to 40% of the Tuition Fee of the following semester.

LAMUDI Scholarship for Deserving Students

Apply for Jobs @Lamudi

Register Now : Lamudi has launched a scholarship fund to encourage and nurture the spirit of entrepreneurship amongst Pakistani youth and to facilitate them to gain hands-on experience in the private corporate sector.

The Scholarship Program will sponsor one university student from a different university each semester, which will entail a scholarship worth Rs.25,000 and an opportunity to “shadow” the Country Director, Saad Arshed, in the office for a full working day (9am-6pm), to get a glimpse into the post-graduate work environment in a global corporate company.

Saad Arshed, said: “I cannot emphasize enough on the role of education in developing an individual or a nation at large. Lamudi realizes the importance of this tool, especially in our country, which has a 59% literacy rate- amongst the lowest in the world.

Hence, we have launched this scholarship fund to help aspiring students make their dreams a reality and also give them a sneak peek into the real corporate life sector-to prepare them for their future endeavors.”

According to UNESCO’s 2009 Global Education Digest, only 6 percent of Pakistanis were university graduates as of 2007, with the Government’s plans to increase this figure to 10 percent by 2015. Lamudi.pk is playing its role to increase this figure and help deserving students who have access to lesser opportunities, fulfill their education dream.

However, in order to be eligible for this scholarship fund, students need to meet a certain criteria which requires a minimum GPA of 2.7/4 and a majors in economic, engineering, business, IT, marketing, agriculture or other related fields.

Term: One student per semester annually

Amount: PKR 25,000 (per term)
