Currently, the state government has announced the new educational norms which emphasise education for all. As the government aims to provide training throughout the nation, it has also developed various scholarship schemes to for both school and college students. The main reason for giving scholarships to students is that majority of the people to date aren’t financially sound in our country. Many people cannot afford to repay higher interest on loans while some people in villages aim to offer education to only the girl child. With the new norms, the government makes it compulsory for all students irrespective of gender to study as the next generation is the future of the country. To eradicate all such unequal principles from society, the government will be offering scholarships to students. Thus Scholarships 2020 promises a bright future to the students.
