Scholarship Program is one of the most common ways which is run by all universities to give financial assistance to the students who come from a financially weaker section but have great possibilities to thrive through their academics. OPJGU has always tried that such students must not be left behind just because of money constraints.


Every year, Merit cum Means Scholarship applications are invited from students and reviewed by the scholarship committee during a series of frequent meetings. Rules and regulations are drafted/amended every year as required. The criterion taken into consideration are merit (CGPA) and means (family income). So many other factors also play an important role like participation in moot courts, debates, sports, cultural activities, societies’ events etc., contribution to university (CDPD & Admissions) and research. The review is done in such a way that maximum students get benefitted.


Students who qualify under Haryana domicile category may be eligible for full or partial fee concession.
