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.

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.

The scholarship will be awarded for studies in India in a government or private school from 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.

The scholarship will be awarded to the students who have secured not less than 50% marks in the previous  final examination and an annual income of  their parents/guardian from  all sources does not exceed Rs. 1 lakh.
