The Balochistan Educational Endowment Fund (BEEF) has declared 145,000 scholarships for students in Matric, DAE, Inter, BS, MBBS, MA MSc, and MS programs, with the Balochistan government extending financial aid to accomplished and diligent students across the province. These scholarships include Provincial Open Merit Scholarships (POMS/DOMS), Institutional Open Merit Scholarships (IOMS), and Special Quota Open Merit Scholarships.
Balochistan students can seek the BEEF Partially Funded Scholarship, with selection based on merit, offering deserving students the chance for higher education through scholarships. A quota system has been introduced to ensure equitable representation across all Balochistan regions, with seats distributed among districts based on demand.
Distribution of Scholarships
It’s crucial to highlight that BEEF strives to maximize opportunities for students across every district in Balochistan. The allocation of slots is determined by soft data sourced from the BBISE/FBISE result gazette. Specifically, 40 scholarships are earmarked for each district, except Quetta, which receives 70 scholarships due to its high population density and numerous educational institutions. This distribution ensures coverage for all 32 districts, which has now been expanded to 34 districts.Likewise, 25 scholarships are dedicated to each subject/discipline within the BS/Professional degree programs.
