Delhi govt to launch fellowship scheme for underprivileged

The fellowship scheme will help students who have got admission to these reputed universities but are unable to attend due to shortage of funds.

The Delhi government has finalised a fellowship scheme to fund the education of students from the SC, ST, OBC and minority communities for pursuing their dreams of getting into world-class universities like Oxford and Harvard.

The scheme is prepared by the Department of Social Welfare and the proposal for it has been sent to other departments such as finance, law and planning for feedback.

The fellowship scheme will help students who have got admission to these reputed universities but are unable to attend due to a shortage of funds.

A senior Delhi government official said, "The file has been moved to various departments and we are now awaiting their comments. It will then be put up in the Cabinet for approval."

Rajendra Pal Gautam, Social Welfare Minister, stated, "We don't want any child to be stopped from dreaming. In many cases, families are not able to bear the financial burden of these universities. We will provide them assistance; these children will play an important role in the development of Delhi. The idea is to promote students belonging to reserved categories and guide them to walk in the footsteps of Ambedkar sahib."
