Top scholarships for students of Jammu and Kashmir

Regarded as the ‘Paradise on Earth’, Jammu & Kashmir attracts tourists from all across the globe for its exceptionally beautiful and breath-taking scenery. However, the poor set-up of education in the state, on the other hand, is discouraging students to seek admission in the schools and colleges there.

To improve the study condition for students and promote higher education, the state and the central government announce a number of scholarships for its students. Here, we have prepared a list of scholarships for students willing to study in Jammu and Kashmir:

Prime Minister Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS) Jammu & Kashmir

Pre-Matric Scholarship Scheme for Minorities

The Government of India also announces Pre-matric scholarship opportunities for minority students of Class 1 to 10 that covers admission fee, tuition fee and maintenance allowance.
