Tamil Nadu Govt to Provide Monthly Scholarship to Girl Students

New Delhi, 21 March 2022 – As per the Tamil Nadu state education budget 2022, the state government has announced that it will offer a monthly scholarship worth INR 1000 to girl students who are studying in government schools of Tamil Nadu. The state government has announced this under the Moovalur Ramamirtham Ammaiyar Higher Education Assurance scheme and has added that the scholarship will be continued uninterrupted until the students receiving it complete their undergraduate study, diploma, or ITI (Industrial Training Institute) education. 

Scholarship Updates

Tami Nadu government has done this by reshaping the ‘Thalikku Thangam’ scheme – that provides gold and financial assistance for women’s marriages – into a higher education assurance scheme that will provide a monthly scholarship of INR 1000 to girl students. Nearly 6 lakh students are expected to benefit from the new scholarship scheme each year and experts see this as an ideological shift from “compulsory” marriage towards education & employment of women.

Professor S Anandhi, Madras Institute of Development Studies, welcomed the scholarship and noted that the scheme moves in line with Periyar’s vision of women’s emancipation. She noted,  “Indeed [it] is a great departure. The government is moving away from the patriarchal idea of compulsory marriage for women to education and employment.”
