Scholarships to BPL Students

PIB December 12/2012 : The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) does not have any scheme exclusively for students belonging to BPL families. However, the MHRD is implementing two Scholarship Schemes viz. the Centrally Sponsored National Means-cum-Merit Scholarship Scheme (NMMSS) and the Central Sector Scholarship Scheme for College and University students.

NMMSS provides scholarships @ Rs. 500 per month to students from class IX every year, which is continued upto class XII, subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions. Students studying as regular students in Government, Government-aided and local body schools and whose parental income from all sources is upto Rs. 1.5 lakh per annum, are eligible to appear in the selection test under the scheme.

The Central Sector Scholarship Scheme for College and University Students is for meritorious students whose parental income does not exceed Rs. 4.50 lakh per annum. The rate of Scholarship is Rs. 10,000 per annum for the first three years of graduate level studies and Rs. 20,000 per annum for post graduate level studies and 4th and 5th year of professional courses.

The funds are not allotted to the States. The scholarship is remitted directly into the bank accounts of the selected students.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Dr. Shashi Tharoor in Lok Sabha today.
