48 crore disbursed to over 6,800 Students for higher education
| Education Jagat - 16 Oct 2021

The Delhi government’s flagship programme for financial assistance to students for higher education has this year handed out Rs 48.14 crore in aid to around 6,820 students wishing to pursue education beyond the 12th standard.
 Dy. C M and Education Minister Manish Sisodia handed over these cheques to the students under this “Merit-cum-Means” scheme, which has so far provided financial assistance to over 13,000 students in the last three years disbursing around Rs 87 crore in educational aid.
 To ensure that no student is deprived of higher education due to financial constraints, in the Academic Year 2017-18 the Directorate of Higher Education formulated a new scheme called “Merit-cum-Means Linked Financial Assistance Scheme” of ‘Delhi Higher Education Aid Trust’ to provide access to quality Higher Education to the students irrespective of their disadvantaged economical background.
  While giving out the scholarship, Sisodia said, “It is the responsibility of the Delhi government that any student in Delhi who is talented and ready to work hard does not miss out on the opportunity to study. It is the responsibility of the Delhi government that any child who is progressing in the field of higher education should not stop his studies due to lack of money.”
