In the wake of the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif earlier this year, the fate of the “Prime Minister’s Laptop Scheme” remains uncertain.

Many believe that the program, which was initiated in August 2013, will be discontinued next year. However, contrary to popular belief, the scheme is very much alive and well. In the fourth and fifth phase, which is expected to commence in the coming months, over 100,000 laptops will be distributed to students who meet the eligibility criteria set out by the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

Though this is certainly a huge number, it is still lower than that of previous years. In the first and second phase of the five year scheme, over 300,000 laptops were distributed to university students from all over Pakistan.

Each laptop is packaged with pre-installed versions of the Windows 8.1 Operating System and Microsoft Office365 and a 3G/4G EVO device, which can be used to access the HEC’s National Digital Library. Laptop Awardees also receive a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Certification voucher and a training opportunity at the Microsoft IT Academy.

Eligible Universities for Prime Minister Laptop Scheme

While those studying in over 100 educational institutes across the country are eligible for the program, enrollees from every single campus cannot apply to receive a free laptop.
