Lovely Professional University (LPU), has announced that it will offer free education to the frontline workers and their wards, in case they get affected with COVID 19 while saving the nation from the infection. For the victims, (whether survivors or deceased) and their wards, a 100% tuition fee waiver will be offered as a token of LPUs gratitude towards their service for the nation. The university also announced scholarships worth Rs. 20 crores to support the workers involved in India’s fight with COVID 19 including medical professionals, policemen, media persons, administrative staff, railway and airline employees, bank employees and others.
Ashok Mittal, Chancellor, Lovely Professional University said, “If India has largely managed to stay safe from COVID 19, it is on the back of the massive efforts that our frontline workers have put in. We salute their commitment to put the nation’s cause ahead of their personal safety every day they go out to perform their duties. It would be an honour for us to have them or their wards study at LPU. The scholarship is a just a small token of our appreciation for their service to the nation.”
The university has come up with 13 categories under which wards of India’s COVID warriors can apply for scholarships. The students looking to enrol this year can apply for scholarships under this scheme along with the necessary documents/certificates, on or before June 30, 2020. For more details, they can click here.
