The Prime Minister’s New 15 Point Programme for the Welfare of Minorities was announced
in June, 2006. It provides that a pre-matric scholarship scheme for meritorious students from minority communities would be implemented.
OBJECTIVE
The scholarship at pre-matric level will encourage parents from minority communities to send their school going children to school, lighten their financial burden on school
education and sustain their efforts to support their children to complete school education.
The scheme will form the foundation for their educational attainment and provide a level
playing field in the competitive employment arena. Empowerment through education,
which is one of the objectives of this scheme, has the potential to lead to upliftment of the
socio economic conditions of the minority communities.

class I to class X, including such residential Government institutes and eligible private
institutes selected and notified in a transparent manner by the State Government and
Union Territory Administration concerned.

1992. The distribution of scholarship among the States/Union Territories will be made on the
basis of population of minorities in the States/Union Territories of Census 2001.(*This would be  changed when figures of 2011 Census is available).
EARMARKING FOR GIRL STUDENTS
30% of scholarship will be earmarked for girl students. In case sufficient number of eligible
girl students are not available, then the balance earmarked scholarships may be awarded
to eligible boy students.
SELECTION
As the number of scholarships for minorities available in a year is fixed and limited it is
necessary to lay down preference for selection. Inter-se selection weightage is to be given
to poverty rather than marks. In case of the renewal applications, such applications would
be fully exhausted before the new applications are considered.
DURATION
The scholarships will be provided for the entire course. Maintenance allowance will be
given for 10 months only in an academic year.
RENEWAL OF SCHOLARSHIP
The scholarship, once awarded, may be renewed during next academic year of the
course on the production of certificate that the student has secured 50% marks.
