GUIDELINES FOR THE SCEME OF SCHOLARSHIP FOR COLLEGE AND
UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
BACKGROUND:
National Merit Scholarship Scheme was introduced by Department of Education in 1961-
62. It was available to brilliant but poor students from class XI to Post-Graduation level.
In addition, a Scheme of Scholarship at the Secondary stage for talented children from
rural areas was also introduced by Department of Education in 1971-72. It was available
to talented but poor students from rural areas from class VI to class XII. These two
Schemes were merged and a single Scheme, namely, the ‘National Merit Scholarship
Scheme’ was established by Department of Education for implementation from 2005-06.
This was available to meritorious students from class IX to Post-Graduation level.
However, since funds were not provided by the Planning Commission for the year 2007-
08, the Scheme has been discontinued w.e.f. 1.4.2007. School Education has come
under a new Department, namely, Department of School Education & Literacy w.e.f. the
year 2007-08. The Department of School Education and Literacy has introduced a new
Scheme: ‘National Means-Cum-Merit Scholarship Scheme’. This Scheme will cover
students from class IX to XII. The Department of Higher Education has introduced a new
scheme for meritorious students from low income families going to colleges / universities
for implementation during the XI Five Year Plan period with an approved outlay of Rs.
1000 crore. This is a Central sector scheme titled “ Central Sector Scheme of
Scholarship for College and University Students”.
2. OBJECTIVE: -

part of their day-to-day expenses while pursuing higher studies.

will be awarded for graduate / postgraduate studies in colleges and universities and for
professional courses, such as Medical, Engineering etc.
4. ALLOCATION OF SCHOLARSHIPS: -
The total number of scholarships will be divided amongst the State Boards based on the
State’s population in the age group of 18-25 years, after segregating share of CBSE and
ICSE on the basis of number of students passing out from various Boards in the country.
50 % of the scholarships would be earmarked for girls. The number of scholarships

Commerce and Humanities streams of the State Board in the ratio of 3:2:1.
