Mr and Mrs. Farooq Jamil initiated Mian Muhammad Jamil & Begum Lal Shah Bukhari Scholarships in 2006, for post-secondary level students for the continuation of their education. Every year since 2006, the number of scholarship awards has been on the rise, extended to girls and boys enrolled in government schools in the districts of Muzaffargarh, Lahore and Chiniot. The scholarships are supposed to continue for professional level degrees based on merit and performance till the end of the year 2016.
Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi (ITA) and Farooq Jamil Scholarship, together, aim to elevate the socio-economic position of needy and deserving students by providing access to quality education, through needs-based scholarships.

All the participants were asked to share their views regarding the program and their academic profiles. It was an honor for Idara-e-Taleem-o-Agahi to help students who are brilliant in studies but cannot afford to pursue education.
