Jalandhar: Every year, thousands of students join Lovely Professional University (LPU) from across India and the world. To support top meritorious students, LPU runs one of the largest scholarship policies in the country, where top students can get scholarship up to Rs 1.5 lakh per year. This year, LPU has moved one step further and decided to provide 100% tuition & residential fee-waiver to top 20 students of each of the recognized central as well as state boards, including CBSE, PSEB, and ICSE boards. This scholarship scheme can be availed on more than 200 programmes offered by the University, ranging from Diploma Programmes to the Post- graduate ones. Unlike other institutions, LPU is offering India’s largest private scholarship scheme by providing scholarship for all semesters instead of only first semester or one year. Scholarship qualifier students remain on LPU scholarship scheme throughout the duration of their respective study-programme.
Last year, more than 1600 students with 90% and more marks joined LPU. Scholarships are provided not only for illustrious achievements in academics but in sports, social service, cultural, co-curricular activities, bravery-acts, research and development works also. Meritorious students in diverse fields, from across India, can become a part of this league of extraordinary achievers this year-2017 as well. In last couple of years, LPU has also recognized the best students who have performed well at state/national or international sports activities.
LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal says: “Our University strongly strives to provide higher education to all meritorious students. Last year, LPU scholarship was up to Rs 1 lakh per year per student, which has now been increased to 1.5 lakh per student. Then, more than 1600 students with 90% and more marks from all across India were benefitted through this scholarship scheme. On the same lines, in order to help the students of Punjab, we are providing 100% scholarship to the Punjabi students also. In fact, 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 for a larger number of students from across the state and the country.”
During the current admission session, some of the students Arshdeep Singh of Ludhiana, Chandan Saini of Pathankot, Lovepreet Kaur of Amritsar, Smridhi Bhambri of Patiala, Pratiksha of Bathinda, Rupinder Kaur of Hoshiarpur, who have joined LPU BTech-MTech Integrated Program in Computer Science Engineering, BTech CSE (Hons), B Sc-MSc Bio-Tech, BPT-MPT Dual Degree, B Tech Computer Applications, and MSc Nutrition & Dietetics programmes respectively are all with good marks in their last qualifying exams. For them LPU is the only university in the country which is going to shape them well as per their aspirations and preferences: “We have joined LPU as we are certain that we will definitely write a successful story of our own by getting the world class education and requisite training here. We know that LPU vision and mission are great and in consonance to our thoughts.”
