SPECIAL SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME FOR THE STUDENTS OF UNION TERRITORIES
OF JAMMU & KASHMIR AND LADAKH DURING ACADEMIC YEAR 2022-23
BACKGROUND
An Expert Group was constituted by the Prime Minister on 18th August, 2010 in the context of enhancing
employment opportunities among youths of Jammu & Kashmir (now, UTs of J&K and Ladakh) to formulate
job plan involving public and private sectors. Among the key recommendations ofthe Expert Group, one
was to offer 5000 fresh scholarships per annum to encourage the youth of J&K and Ladakh to pursue
higher studies outside the UT. The proposal arises out of the identified strategy of a human resource
development initiative focused on improving skill set through improving access to education.
OBJECTIVE
To provide academic fee (tuition and other admissible fee) and maintenance allowance (to bearexpenses
on account of hostel & mess fee, cost of books and other incidental charges) to students belonging to J&K
and Ladakh who, after passing Class XII or equivalent examination, secure admission in Government
colleges/institutions and other select institutions outside the UTs of J&K and Ladakh through AICTE’s
counselling process under the supernumerary quota created by the Government except in medical
courses. Scheme was launched in the year 2011 and modified from time to time to make the scheme
student friendly. The scheme also envisages to build capacities of the youth of J&K and Ladakh to enable
them to compete with their peers in the national mainstream.
SCOPE
Under the scheme 5000 fresh scholarships are available per annum. Out of these, 2070 scholarships are
for General Degree Courses, 2830 for Professional/Engineering courses and 100 for Medical Courses. The
number of scholarships for engineering and medical studies would be kept flexible, subject to the ceiling
of 5000 fresh scholarships per annum and subject to the savings accruing from any shortfall in the number
of students opting for general degree courses.
