SCHEME OF SCHOLARSHIP FOR COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY Under CSSS

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
DEPARTMENT OF HIGHER EDUCATION
CENTRAL SECTOR SCHEME OF SCHOLARSHIP FOR COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

The Ministry of Human Resources Development, Department of Higher Education, Government of India has introduced a new scholarship scheme titled “Central Sector Scheme of Scholarship for College and University Students”.

OBJECTIVE:
To provide financial assistance to meritorious students from low-income families to meet day-to-day expenses while pursuing higher studies.

SCOPE:

The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of the results of Senior Secondary Examination (class XII) of 10+2 pattern or equivalent. 82000 fresh scholarships per annum (41000 for boys and 41000 for girls) will be awarded for graduate / postgraduate studies in colleges and universities and for professional courses such as Medical, Engineering etc.

ALLOCATION OF SCHOLARSHIPS:

The total number of scholarships will be divided amongst the State Boards based on the State’s population in the age group of 18-25 years, after segregating share of CBSE and ICSE on the basis of number of students passing out from various Boards in the country. The number of scholarships allotted to a Board would be distributed amongst pass outs of the Science, Commerce and Humanities streams of the Board in the ratio of 3:2:1. Within the specified quota, the selection shall be made on merit.

ELIGIBILITY:
  • The student should have scored a minimum 80% of marks in Class XII of 10+2 pattern or equivalent.
  • The student should belong to non-creamy layer as defined by the Department of Personnel and Training in their Notification No 36012/22/93-Estt. (SCT), dated 08.11.1993 and as modified vide their OM No. 36033/3/2004-Estt. (Res) dated 09.03.2004 and as may be further modified from time to time and not availing of any other scholarship scheme. The scholarship once awarded will continue and it will be renewed from year to year till the completion of the course for which the award has been made. A fresh income certificate each year will not be called for provided the scholar fulfils all other terms and conditions stipulated for the renewal.
  • The reservation would be applicable in terms of Central Reservation Policy and internal earmarking.
  • The Undergraduate/Postgraduate/Professional courses are pursued in a recognized college/ institution in India.

TENABILITY:
A scholarship under the scheme has to be availed of in the year it is made in the Scheme for the duration of the course subject to fulfilling eligibility criteria.

RATE OF SCHOLARSHIPS:

The scholarship will be given @ Rs.1000/- per month at Graduation level for first three years of College and University courses and Rs.2000/- per month at Post graduation level. Students pursuing professional courses would get Rs.2000/- per month in the 4th & 5th year. The scholarship would be paid for 10 months in an academic year.

RENEWAL OF SCHOLARSHIPS:

A scholarship under the scheme is renewable from year to year within the same stage of education. The renewal will depend on promotion to the next class provided the scholar secures 60% or more marks in aggregate in the semester/annual examination which determines his promotion to the next class. It will also be subject to discipline and maintenance of attendance by the scholar. Complaints against these scholars regarding indiscipline including any complaints of having indulged in ragging would lead to forfeiture of scholarship. If a scholar is unable to appear in the annual examination owing to illness and or on account of any unforeseen event, the award may be renewed for the next academic year on submission of medical certificate and other proof to satisfy the Head of the Institution who will certify that the student would have passed with 60% had he appeared in the examination. If a scholar gives up the chosen course of study before its completion or if he changes the course of study without the approval of the MHRD the scholarship will be cancelled. Good conduct and regularity in attendance are also required for continuance of the scholarship. The decision of the MHRD will be final and binding in all such matters. Scholarship once cancelled will not be revived in any circumstance.

PAYMENT OF SCHOLARSHIP:
Scholarship will be paid to the selected students directly by the Central Government through a Bank Account opened by them for the purpose in a designated Bank. Based on the eligibility certificate presented by the awardees, the designate bank(s) shall open account for all such merit scholars and ensure timely credit and maintain a proper database of the account numbers of the students receiving the scholarship. Where the branch of the bank is not available, the bank will issue co-branded ATM cards to the awardees, so that they can draw scholarship from any ATM without any charges. This will include flexibility of withdrawal of scholarship by the awardees through ATM of all nationalized banks, and its subsidiaries. The payment of scholarship will start from the month the admission is obtained.

UPDATE:

Anuj Kothari said...

@Sonam
You have a nice score and good chances of getting the scholarship.
I read your comment about your problem with guardians in India.

I the form you should see what is being asked.
if parents name is asked then you have to write your parents name.
But if reference or guardian is being addressed then you have to give guardians name, address and other details.
Generally the guardian address is understood by a signature. If name has to be signed then it is for guardian.
Best Of Luck and continue your good record!

sonam dolkar said...

i dont have any relative or guardian in india. i m refugee child and every thing is done by the school so far. but here in the form, i have to fill up the empoyer's signature and all proving attestations that i don have. so what shall i do? i have only a support letter from school for my condition.can i leaf the blanks or write about my parents in Tibet.

sonam dolkar said...

i need the solution soon please....thank you!!!

Anuj Kothari said...

@ Sonan
You have a very special case.
I cant understand if you came from Tibet to HP and did your entire schooling then how did you not have a guardian. If your school has helped you till now then ask the person who has helped you till now and he will tell you the way.

If the form asks for parents information then there is no option. You have to write your parents information.

For guardians position, the people have helped you succeed till now will be more than happy to help you get a deserved scholarship.]

Best Of Luck.

sonam dolkar said...

yes i have done my schooling in India for eight years till now. but see, there are tibetan refugee schools which are run under the patronage of the Dalai Lama. for us, every expenses is done by the school,a cheritable organisation. till now, i stayed in school and really i dont have any relatives here in India. we are getting some money in college from school, but that is very limited and now i m doing my side work. its very difficult you know...
i have supporting letter frm my school for my real condition and there is so much restriction in Tibet by china. we cant call and send letter also. my parents are poor peasants in Tibet and no income status. even to send these things are very difficult. almost impossible. so please advise.
thanking you
sonam dolkar

Anuj Kothari said...

@Sonam

Ok, now I understood your case and how u conpleted whole schooling without any guardian.

Now you know your parents are there but u dont have any status of their income whatsoever.

That is a big problem as you you have to prepare an affidavit of your parents income.

According to the instructions by CBSE income details are to be provided of parents only. And there is no way you can get it and even if u have a way its too late because last date of submitting the form is 31st Dec 2008.

So instead of wasting any time jus contact CBSE dept. which handles scholarship matters.

The e-mail addresses are given here:
Mr S. Anandan at sanandan.cbse@nic.in
Mrs I M Catherine at catherine.cbse@nic.in

Write you entire problem to them. That you cannot contact your parents properly and they are poor peasants and everything about your school also. Mention your address in Tibet and your school name and address also. That is the only thing which can help and hope for good outcome.

Wish you good luck.

I had been completed my 12Th exam with raj. board in the year2005 with 74.15%marks. now i am doing post graduation by rajasthan university,jaipur. pls. tell me if i am eligible for this or not?

Anuj Kothari said...

Hello
Sorry but you are not eligible for the scholarship.
1. Because you percentage is 74 (min 80 required)
2. Because you passed in 2005 (Only students passed in 2008 are allowed)

Amit said...

I completed my M.com in the year of 2006 and now i want to pursue my further studies like MBA course from one the good Universities in Gujarat.
I am Physically challenged candidate whose right leg is polio affectd and seeking scholarship for my further studies.

I secured 68% in B.com and 46.25% in M.com.

Can i be eligible to receive such scholarships as the programme fees is around Rs.55000 per annum.

Awaiting your reply

Anuj Kothari said...

@Amit
By no means you are eligible for
the scholarship because your have done your 12th long back.
Its only for 2008 passed students.

Secondly the application date has already gone past.

You will surely have reservation in any college you want.

Best of luck for your MBA.

william said...

sir, as you have said above this scholarship is available only to this year's pass-outs .....is there any way by which students who passed 12th in previous year can avail this scholarship?? ..thank you

Anuj Kothari said...

@ Remya & William
The answer to both your questions is no.

Scholarship is only for 2008 pass outs.

It's bad I know but at least they have thought for the good of the students and we should appreciate it.

ayushi said...

sir ,earlier u told me dat i m eligible for the scolarship . but sir how i will i b able to know abt dat and when . plz reply.
AYUSHI AGGARWAL

Anuj Kothari said...

@Ayushi

I told u were eligible.

Then all you had to do was got o CBSE board website and fill the application form.

If your application was selected then you would have been notified.

The date for application of scholarship is over (31st Dec 2008) so now its no use.

There are some other scholarships also awarded in Degree colleges. You can try them out. One example is Ratan Tata Scholarship (which pays about more than half the fees of your degree).

Currently www.edunewz.com is undergoing a redesign and expansion so we cant write more about scholarships. But within a couple of weeks we will be running on to it.

So be sure to check out!

Anuj Kothari said...

@Yadhu
The application dates are over and lists are out. The application for remaining seats is also over!
You could have asked about it a bit earlier.

Prasanna said...

sir i am journalist from chikmagalore karnataka. The students of our district have no information about this scholorship. but last date is already over. what is next dates for next year application. and how the last date is jan-2009 because the PUC result is annoucing in april-may

Anuj Kothari said...

Hello Prasanna

The notices are given by CBSE board website but are not clear and properly spread. So I and news activists like me try to spread the message across by blogs and emails.

The dates were Jan 2009 because these are scholarships for students passing in 2008(only from CBSE board).

Notice for this year will come when last years work gets over. The application and response was not as good as expected and so the had to extend the dates for application and after declaring the results another round was introduces for more scholarships.

I wish students this year take full use of the opportunity.

anu said...

Sir/Madam, I have completely filled all the details metioned in the application. Do I have to get every page of the apppliction attested by the principalof the institution I have joined along with the xerox photocopies of my marks card and caste certificate or only at the places metioned in Annexture-1?
