So, the students meeting the requirement of Bracket- 1 gets the highest Scholarship and the those in Bracket – 2 or 3 gets relatively lesser scholarship.

    Scholarship Phases: The amount of Scholarship also depends on the Phase in which the candidate takes Admission in the University. Admissions in LPU is done in different Phases, which are bifurcations of the Admission time period. Phase 1 starts as early as January 2020 and continues till the end of April 2020.

    Phase – 240%30%20%
    Phase – 330%20%10%

    Details of Scholarship Brackets: Scholarship brackets for various categories are detailed below:

    Eligibility Qualification:

    • Bracket 1 - Students scoring more than 95% marksin eligibility qualification falls in Bracket -1 and are thus eligible for Scholarship of 50% of Programme fee in Phase-1.
