The Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture (IVS) is a registered not-for-profit organization. It relies on the philanthropic contributions it receives From donors to offer scholarships, build school facilities and help the community.

Over 30 years, IVS has produced 2000-plus alumni who are some of the most successful and sought-after professionals in art, architecture and design in Pakistan today. Our graduates are industry leaders, entrepreneurs and creative groundbreakers across diverse fields.

The majority of funds donated to IVS are used to provide financial aid to disadvantaged students in the form of interest-free loans and scholarships. With the financial support, deserving students are able to complete their studies without the burden of paying fees.

We’ve witnessed how our financial support programs have transformed the lives of students and their families. They graduate as empowered individuals with a plethora of opportunities. Beneficiaries of our financial assistance programs have gone on to pursue higher education abroad, launched businesses, taken lucrative jobs—and most importantly, they find avenues to give back to the community so others can also prosper.

IVS is certified as a Not-for-Profit Organization (NPO) by the Pakistan Centre of Philanthropy (PCP).

All donations to IVS qualify for tax credit under section 61 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001. 

Admission at IVS is based on merit, regardless of a student’s ability to pay the fees. Once admitted, students apply for financial assistance and are evaluated by a panel for their need-based eligibility.

There are two ways that IVS provides financial support to students: financial assistance through interest-free loans, and scholarships that cover up to 100 percent of fees as well as the cost of materials and supplies. 

Scholarship payments can be made annually based on the invoice generated for each year, in either May or November.

An individual or institution can set up a dedicated scholarship fund to support students for the entire duration of study.

Donors will be sent an update about the student they are sponsoring and a progress report at the end of each semester.

You can also contribute a sum to the IVS Financial Assistance and Scholarship Fund. This will be applied towards full or partial awards to students for interest-free loans and scholarships.
