Financial Assistance & Scholarships

Financial Scheme

  • The Financial Assistance Program (FAP) being implemented in FUI since 2007 has been revisited in order to cater for the changes in the organogram and progression of FUMC into FUIC to include the Dental College and Institute of Rehabilitation Sciences.

  • FUI is also mindful of the high cost of the professional education and other hardships of the parents. To address their predicament and to help the students persue their educational goals a Need Based Financial Loan Program (Qarza-eHasna) has been implemented instead of Financial Assistance Programme from 2016.

  • The Fauji Foundation in general and Foundation University, Islamabad (FUI) in particular is committed to provide most conducive learning environments at NO Profit No Loss basis. The FUI has a firm resolve that the talented students are not denied the opportunity of quality professional education due to lack of resources or finances. The University seeks out such students with potential to excel and support them with the Merit Based Scholarships. The assistance is awarded purely on merit and has no string / conditions attached to it for those who excel out/shine in studies (No categorization of civilians / armed forces etc).
