Lovely Professional University has introduced scholarship and financial aid program in a bid to attract meritorious students. The scholarship scheme has already been used by more than 20,000 students over the last five years. This program has now become the largest private scholarship scheme in India. So far scholarship worth more than Rs. 1.5 bn has been given to the students under this program.


Under the program, a student can avail scholarship upto Rs. 1 lac per year. The scholarships will be awarded to students on the basis of their performance in the board examination, graduation or the national/state level tests, etc. Equal consideration will be given to the students who have performed well in sports at the state/national and international level. The scholarships will be applicable for nearly all the 200 programs offered by the university.


One of the students this year from Hyderabad, Mohammed Mazhar enrolled for B Tech (Hons)- M Tech Dual Degree Programme of Mechanical Engineering is thrilled to get a scholarship of Rs.1 Lac (per year). Referring to LPU scholarship program Mazhar said, "Inspite of scoring 93.6% marks in 12thboard exams, it would have been difficult to pursue higher education because of weak financial family condition. It is only because of LPU scholarship program that extends throughout the duration of program, that I am able to follow my dream of becoming an Engineer."


LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal said, "LPU strongly strives to provide higher education to all meritorious students. We do not want that a capable student be debarred from receiving quality education. I am happy to see that we have been able to make this positive impact for large number of people across the country."


LPU scholarship is also based on the activities such as cultural, research & development, co-curricular, social service and bravery awards. The students not falling under the Scholarship Scheme are eligible for the Financial Aid based on score in the test LPU – Test for Financial Aid (LPU - TFA).
