Education Conditional Cash Transfers are an important pillar of BISP and are included in the BISP framework as Policy #73 ‘Education Conditional Cash Transfers’. Education Conditional Cash Transfers (CCT) serve the dual purpose of socially assisting vulnerable households and at the same time reduce the number of out of school children, which is an important outcome for Pakistan given that there are 18.7 million out-of-school children in the country. Under the nationwide BISP School Stipends program, students aged 4-22 years of all BISP beneficiary families are eligible to get education stipends. The program has been extended nationwide to 160 districts. As per BISP’ weighted-in-favour-of-girls stipends policy for all conditional cash transfer programs, girls get a higher stipend across all age groups, which signals the government’s intent to facilitate girls’ education.
