As the largest scholarship-providing university in Nepal, Pokhara University provides scholarships to 10 percent of approved students in affiliated colleges and 20 percent of approved students in constituent schools. Graduates from either government or non-government schools or colleges are eligible to apply for scholarships and other financial support.

Up until 2017, any students who passed the SLC test in government schools were eligible to receive scholarships; however, starting in 2021, students who have graduated from class 6 through 10 at a government school are given priority. Any remaining scholarships are then distributed to students who graduated from class 10 at a government school. Students from non-government schools can also apply, but it is nearly impossible for them to receive a scholarship under this new scheme.

The PU Scholarship Selection Examination determines eligibility to receive scholarships based on applicants' entrance scores and other credentials.
