Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh

The minorities' community students (Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists,Parsis etc...) throughout India are entitled to handsome scholarships by theGovernment of India. But due to lack of awareness about these very few students avail them and most of the scholarships go waste. For availing these opportunities for minority scholarships, the procedure isvery simple.

Three types of scholarship schemes are available:

1.Pre-Matric Scholarship Scheme: Under this scheme Scholarships will be awarded to eligible students of class 1 to 10 in government/recognized private schools/institutes. The financial assistance includes admission / tution fees and maintenance allowances.
Eligibility criteria: Students who have scored not less than 50% marks in the previous final examination, and whose parents'/ guardian's annual income does not exceed Rs. 1 lakh, are eligible for the scholarship. 50% marks requirement will not apply to class 1 students.
