Dear students,

Financial aid applications will be open from 28 February 2022 till March 08, 2022.

FCCU values diversity and aims to make quality education accessible for meritorious and financially deprived students to become responsible citizens of the nation and the country.

FCCU set aside a significant amount of budget for the scholarships and committed to make education affordable for students and their respective families through its generous funding. Under the academic year 2020-21, FCCU provided scholarships of PKR~209 Million to over 2,250 students.

Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) believes that deserving students should not give up their dreams of getting quality education because of financial constraints. The college, therefore, dedicates a significant portion of its budget each year to provide need-based financial aid to its deserving and academically eligible students. The online financial aid application system is used to initiate its rigorous evaluation process to determine the unmet financial need of the family to enable them to get quality education at FCCU. With the persistent increase in the number of applications, we are solely able to consider the most deserving students in unmet financial need. The interested students can apply after the issuance of the college roll number by the admission office. Special considerations will be given to meritorious students from underprivileged families and minority communities.
