Applications for Golden Hearts Scholarship by Punjabi University are now open, which provide up to
Rs.2,04,200/- to Indian
students to help them pursue higher studies in Engineering – regardless of religion, caste or creed.
Punjabi University has taken a lead in filling the widening gulf between privileged and under-privileged by imparting technical education to brighter students from rural areas. The people living in rural areas of Punjab have lagged behind in all facilities like healthcare and education. This scholarship is meant for those disadvantage section of society who have passed their Matric examination from a village school and also a permanent residents of a village. The scholarship aims to uplift those students who are meritorious, but unable to pursue higher education due to financial constraints and lack of urban facilities. The free-ship is a kind of loan to the students, who are expected to repay the institution one year after graduation. The money returned by student will be used to fund the education of other rural students.
Punjabi University has come forward to shoulder this responsibility through Golden Heart Scholarship Scheme. University is committed to ensuring that students are not held back by their financial circumstances. For this scheme, no grant from the government is sought. Punjabi University is aware that poor parents living in rural areas are unable to afford even the minimum required fee for the engineering courses; hence the University has made all efforts to raise interest-free loan scholarships from the benevolent donors and institutions. Many Philanthropist, NRI’s, Banks and Industrial houses have donated generously to support the tuition fee of rural students studying under Golden Hearts Scholarship scheme. Hundreds of rural students admitted under the
Golden Heart Scholarship have been exempted from paying any tuition fee since establishment of college in year 2004, with the promise to return the fee after completion of their studies.
There are 180 students selected every year, to be sponsored under the Golden Hearts Scholarship Scheme. Children from rural areas after 10th class are selected on the basis of their score in the matric exams and are imparted quality training of +2 levels. They are upgraded to four-year degree level course in engineering in prime disciplines after passing 10+2 (Non-Medical) examination conducted by Punjab School Education Board.
The college has become the torch bearer for students who are financially constrained to pay fee for higher education. Many of the Golden Heart scholarship students have excelled in their career and occupying high positions in public and private sector engineering industries. Many students have also refunded the full fee amount after completion of their studies on getting a good job.
