Lovely Professional University (LPU) strongly believes in the fact that monetary constraints should not be an obstacle for a student to have access to quality education. So, the University extends Scholarship Scheme which is an initiative by the University to cultivate the talent of students that may be hidden due to financial constraints. Scholarship can be availed in all the Programmes of the University, ranging from Diploma to PhD. In the last seven years, the University has offered scholarships worth 500+ Crores.
Scholarships are awarded to candidates based on their performance in any of the following categories:
For each category mentioned above, three brackets of Scholarship (Bracket 1, 2 and 3) are defined. Each bracket represents specific criteria (for example scores in qualifying exam) which an applicant has to reach for him/her to fall in that particular bracket. The criteria in each bracket decreases as it proceeds and so does the scholarships. So, the students meeting the requirement of Bracket- 1 gets the highest Scholarship and those in Bracket – 2 or 3 gets a relatively lesser scholarship.
Scholarship Phases: The amount of Scholarship also depends on the Phase in which the candidate takes Admission to 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 2019 and continues until the end of April 2019. The subsequent phases (Phase 2, 3, 4) are conducted only if the seats in the concerned Programme remain vacant. The amount of Scholarship reduces with each passing phase and no Scholarship is offered in Phase 4 (if conducted). The dates for Phase 2, 3 and 4 are as follows:
Amount of Scholarship in different Phases and Brackets: The Scholarship amount/ percentage varies as per the following table:
Phase – 1
Phase – 2
Phase – 3
Scholarship brackets for various categories are detailed below:
NOTE: For Lateral Entry Programmes, in addition to Eligibility Qualification, Scholarship will also be offered on the basis of qualification previous to Eligibility qualification. For example, someone seeking admission in B.Tech (Lateral Entry) can seek scholarship on the basis of Diploma (Eligibility Qualification) or 10th (Qualification previous to Diploma).
For each Scholarship bracket, cut-offs are determined by the University and accordingly the Scholarships as mentioned in Table – 1 is offered. To know the tentative cut-off for various programmes and approximate number of students falling in different categories, refer to the university website.
