NSP Post Matric Scholarships Selection Process
The selection process for Pre Matric and Post Matric fresh and renewal applicants are as given below:
For Fresh Applicants Selection Process
As the number of NSP scholarships for minorities available in a year is fixed and limited, it is necessary to lay down preference for selection. Inter selection weightage is to be given to poverty rather than marks (the applicant is required to submit an income certificate as per para-11(ii)). In case of same income, merit shall be generated from ‘Date of Birth’ criteria of applicant (senior is preferred).
For Renewal Applicants Selection Process
There is no merit list generation for renewal cases. Renewal applicant will get the scholarship if one has obtained 50% in his/her previous year’s examinations (at the same institute and in same course) and his/her application is verified by all authorities (as designated by Ministry of Minority Affairs) and approved by State Governments/UTs.
