The Pehchaan Scholarship Program encourages higher education among Pakistan’s minorities by providing a financial aid program for prospective college and university students. We aim to support the poorest students with the highest academic potential and a strong motivation to bring progress to their families and communities.


Our Scholarship Program is for any minority student following higher education at a recognized Pakistani college or university. Here are our criteria’s for applicants:

  • Pakistani citizens with no dual nationality
  • Living in Pakistan
  • 18 years of age or older
  • from a minority community within Pakistan
  • have graduated or will graduate from a Pakistani secondary school
  • and have been accepted or are in the process to be accepted by a Pakistani university or college


From all the applications received the Selection Committee reviews and selects the most suiting students for our Scholarship Program. This is based on the student’s financial situation, academic achievements, motivation, and career/life goals. After every school-year we will review our students’ grades, and based on their performance we will determine whether we will continue their scholarship. It is important for us to have a sustainable relationship with our students, which is why we value clear and honest communication above all.
