A good news has been announced for the students of NED University of Engineering & Technology, Karachi. The undergraduate students will recieve scholarships.

For these students, the university administration on Monday awarded scholarships ranging from 20 to 100 percent.

The university initiated the undergraduate fellowship program, named for notable national leaders such as Allama Iqbal, Quaid-e-Azam, Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar, Liaquat Ali Khan, Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, and Fatima Jinnah, after receiving clearance from the syndicate.

The new fellowship scheme has a yearly budget of Rs. 233 million. This initiative, according to NED University, is unprecedented in Pakistan's higher education industry and attempts to guarantee that no student drops out of school because of financial difficulties. The current scholarship scheme of Rs 200 million is supplemented by this program.

100% scholarships would be awarded proportionately to students from the Karachi Board, A-levels, and other boards, according to Dr. Sarosh Lodhi, vice chancellor of NED University. Scholarships will be awarded to 2,900 new students: 1,500 from the Karachi Board, 300 from A-levels, and 60 from the boards in Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas.

The best 50 students across all educational boards will receive 100% of their tuition and examination fees covered by the Jinnah Merit Fellowship, according to information obtained by the news.

Those ranked 51–100 will receive a 70% scholarship from the Iqbal Leadership Fellowship, and those placed 101–150 will receive a 50% grant from the Sir Syed Visionary Fellowship. For ranks 151 through 225, the Jauhar Fellowship will award a 30% scholarship; for ranks 225 through 325, the Liaquat Ali Khan Excellence Fellowship will award a 25% scholarship; and for students placed higher than 401, the Fatima Jinnah Academic Fellowship will award a 20% scholarship.

According to Dr. Sarosh Lodhi, at the time of admission, the merit list and the list of students eligible for fellowships would be posted on the NED website.

The institution has stated that following the first semester, fellowships will be awarded to the top three students in each program, determined by CGPA, for presently enrolled students. The Jinnah Merit Fellowship will cover 100% of the tuition fees for the first-place holder; the Iqbal Leadership Fellowship will cover 70% of the tuition fees for the second-place holder; and the Sir Syed Visionary Fellowship will cover 50% of the tuition fees for the third-place holder.

A 22% tuition fee discount will be granted to already-enrolled students with a CGPA above 2.0 as part of the Jauhar Fellowship, whereas only a 15% discount will be given to those with a CGPA below 2.0.
