Introduction

This is an attempt to fill in information gap and provide the information on various National & State level Scholarships and Awards for students by the Government of India through its Ministries, Departments and autonomous institutions and by the state governments. This information will be useful for the students who are pursuing their school level (class 1 to 12th) education. This attempt is to bring in all relevant publicly available information related to scholarships and awards and make it available at a single point.

Along side providing free schooling, the Government of India and State governments have launched many schemes, scholarships and programmes to raise the levels of participation of the marginalised in school education. Aimed to decreasing drop-out rate, reducing gender gap, motivating students for pursuing higher education and promoting equity.
