  • The Approach

    PEEF has adopted a "Pro active Approach" for award of Outreach Scholarships to the talented and deserving students. No advertisements are released to seek applications for scholarships; rather PEEF itself obtains data of meritorious students from Punjab Examination Commission (PEC), all Board of Intermediate and Secondary Educations (BISEs) of Punjab and Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) and contact the eligible and meritorious students who have attained top positions in their respective tehsils.

    Geographic Allocation

    The Punjab Educational Endowment Fund endeavors to bring best educational opportunities to the less privileged and talented youth of Punjab, and bring them at par with the most fortunate ones. In this perspective, all the districts of Punjab have been divided into two major categories; Developed Districts (DDs) and Less Developed Districts (LDDs)

    The district category wise allocation of scholarships is given below:
    District Category Number of Districts % of Scholarships Allocated
    Less Developed Districts (LDD) 16 50%
    Developed Districts (DD) 20 50%
    Total 36 100%

    By virtue of this categorization, less developed districts of Punjab are awarded more scholarships than developed districts.
