Jun 3, 2013 12:07 IST

The Ministry of Human Resource Development on 2 June 2013 launched a Special Scholarship Scheme for J&K students appearing for class XII or equivalent exams through the State Board of Jammu & Kashmir or Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) affiliated schools located in J&K.

Under this scheme, 5000 scholarships will be given every year to J&K students, who seek admission outside the State to pursue higher education in general degree courses, engineering and medical studies in government colleges/institutes / other non-government institutes recognized by AlCTE or UGC.

Efforts are also being made by the Ministry to popularize the scheme among the students by publicising it at school level. In order to improve the delivery-mechanism and also effectively monitor the progress of the scheme, it has been assigned to the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for implementation through an e-portal from the Academic Year 2012-13.
