     The choices you make today are going to have a profound impact on the entire direction of your

Welcome to Kinnaird

   Kinnaird is one of the esteemed colleges for women in
   Pakistan and we are proud of its history and present

   The name Kinnaird comes from Lady Mary Kinnaird who
   belonged to a titled family of Scotland. During the British
   period in India, certain British philanthropic enterprises, run
   by educated and sometimes very wealthy women from UK,
   worked for the education of women in India. Education was
   also a significant agenda for the family of Lady Kinnaird, who
   was politically involved with India. Her husband and her son
   successively were Chairmen of the committee that spoke on
   Indian issues in the British parliament.

   The Kinnaird family raised financial support and even
   donated personal funds and thus the college evolved in
   1913 from within Kinnaird High School which was already in
   existence. Today Kinnaird ranks as a premier institution of
   Pakistan for education of women, where over 2000 students
   are enrolled every year.

   The college shifted to its present location in 1938 and is
   home to more than 5000 girls who study at the college. The
   beautifully laid out gardens provide a charming setting for
   the twenty acre campus.
