According to details, the scholarships have been announced by the Punjab Educational Endowment Fund (PEEF) and students who have secured a minimum of 60% marks in 2021 are eligible to apply for them.
In addition to the minimum marks, applicants must need to be either orphans, children of government employees from grades 1 to 4, or those with a family income of less than Rs. 23,000 in order to apply for the scholarships.
