SCHEME OF SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDENTS FROM NON-HINDI SPEAKING STATES FOR POST MATRIC STUDIES IN HINDI
The Scheme was started in 1955-56 with the objectives to encourage the study of Hindi in Non-Hindi Speaking States and to make available to the Government of these States, suitable personnel to man teaching and other posts where knowledge of Hindi is essential. The Scheme was revised from 2004-2005. Under the revised Scheme, 2500 Scholarships are provided to meritorious students studying at post-matric to Ph.D. level, for recognized fulltime courses of education for study of Hindi as one of the subjects on the basis of the results of “examinations next below” conducted by a Board of Education or a University or a Voluntary Hindi Organisation. The rate of Scholarship ranges from Rs.300/- to 1000/- per month depending upon the course stage of study. This scheme is implemented through the State Governments/UT Administrations.
