Millions of Pakistanis suffered catastrophic damages to their infrastructure and way of life as a result of last year’s tremendous floods. As a result of a lack of funding, students at institutions in flood-affected areas are on the verge of leaving their studies.
As a response, USAID launched a scholarship program in 2004 that provides financial help to students from low-income households and is based on both talent and need. The initiative will provide financial aid for two semesters to flood-affected students at thirty partner universities who are having financial difficulties.
Here is a detailed explanation of the Undergraduate Scholarships for Flood Affected Students.
- In Fall 2023, the student must be enrolled in a four- or five-year undergraduate degree program for the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, or seventh semester.
- There are no closed disciplines or topics.
- The Pakistani government, the PDMA, or the district administration will decide which districts, sub-districts, or UC Tehsils are impacted.
- Give details of any flood damage proof, such as a damaged property or lost revenue. Fake photos downloaded from the internet will be rejected.
- The University’s Institutional Scholarship Award Committee will interview the selected candidates to decide whether to provide them with financial help.
- Scholarships for women are allocated at a rate of 50%.
- The cost of tuition for the spring and fall semesters of 2024.
- A two-semester stipend that covers food, accommodation, transportation, and other educational expenses.
How to Apply?
- Students must use the HEC Online Application System to submit their applications.

- Uncompleted forms won’t be accepted.
August 16, 2023, is the last day to submit an online application.
- Although HEC has the authority to cancel a scholarship if physical verification finds that the applicant’s information was fraudulent or insufficient, scholarships will only be given out on the basis of merit.
- Additionally, admissions to evening programs with higher tuition prices, two-year bachelors, associate’s, or lateral degree programs, as well as admissions gained on a self-support, self-finance, or self-sustain basis, are not eligible.
- Students who have already been awarded a scholarship or ongoing grant are not eligible.
- The scholarship assistance will be limited to two semesters.
