UKAA Scholarship Application

UKAA (University of Karachi Alumni Association) was established to solidify support to build an Alumni Association based on sound democratic fundamentals. This also led to the establishment of their UKAA scholarship in 2004, and since then they have been able to award 1,845 scholarships to meritorious and deserving students of Karachi.

In fact, due to their mission to promote higher education in Karachi, Pakistan, they were able to also provide $58,000 to the Institute of Business Administration for the construction of

a new educational facility. 

Moreover, there are still enormous scholarships for Caribbean students or even students from the Middle East, that can help alleviate your financial burden further. We would always advise that when applying for scholarships you should limit yourself to scholarships exclusively for your needs. You are always free to apply for international financial assistance like dance scholarships if you’re exceptional in dancing, or even culinary scholarships if you love cooking.

Before we move on to showing you the requirements for the University of Karachi Alumni Association scholarship, it’s nice to know that one of UKAA’s missions is to organize and establish endowment funds and provide scholarships to deserving students in the University of Karachi and its current and previously affiliated colleges and universities.
