Introduction of new Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Pre-Matric Scholarship for needy Scheduled Tribe Students, Studying in Classes IX & X
The Union Cabinet has approved a new Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Pre-Matric Scholarship for Scheduled Tribe (ST) students, studying in Class IX & X.  The decision will go a long way in improving participation of ST students enrolled full time in secondary education in Government schools or in a school recognised by Government or a Central/State Board of Secondary Education, whose parents’ annual income does not exceed Rs two lakh. The Scheme will help in minimizing the incidence of dropout, especially in transition from the elementary to secondary stage of education.
