The Government of Andhra Pradesh is committed for the holistic development and welfare of the Minorities in the State and accordingly the Government have made substantial budgetary allocations for providing scholarships to the students belonging to the Minorities on a saturation basis and this initiative has over the years encouraged a large number of Minority students to complete Professional and Post-Graduate Courses.
2. In the last decade, as the global economy has significantly grown and became networked, opportunities for gainful employment have manifested manifold both in India and abroad for youth who have had the benefit of higher and specialized education in renowned national and international educational institutions. The Post-Matric Scholarship scheme of the Government of Andhra Pradesh and the Government of India has facilitated the Minority students being able to study in the reputed national institutions of higher learning. However, bright and deserving Minority students are often handicapped in gaining access to reputed international educational institutions only on account of their economical backwardness.
3. Taking due cognizance of the above extant situation and for bridging this gap and providing equal access to the Minority students, the Government of Andhra Pradesh has decided to introduce a new scheme of “OVERSEAS EDUCATION SCHEME FOR MINORITIES” for the benefit of the students belonging to the Minorities.
