The Minority Affairs Ministry has extended last date for submission of online applications for Pre-matric and Post-matric scholarships for 2016-17 for students belonging to the Minority communities till 31 August, 2016. The last date for receipt of online applications (fresh/renewal) for 2016-17 was due to expire on 31 July, 2016. Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, the Minister of State for Minority Affairs (Independent Charge) said here today that the decision has been taken keeping in mind the interest of needy students from poor sections of the Minority communities. Shri Naqvi said a large number of requests and suggestions were received from people across the country in this regard.
The last date for receipt of online applications (fresh/renewal) for 2016-17 under School Education Level i.e. Pre-matric scholarship for Class 1 to 10th and Post-matric scholarship for Class 11 and 12 for students belonging to the Minority communities has been extended up to 31 August, 2016 which is due to expire on 31st of this month.
The aim of scholarship at pre-matric level is to 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 objective of scholarship at Post-matric level is to award scholarships to meritorious students belonging to economically weaker sections of minority community so as to provide them better opportunities for higher education; increase their rate of attainment in higher education and enhance their employability.
