Rajasthan CM Higher Education Scholarship Scheme Apply

Scholarships are ways to incentivize education in a country that, in its more rural areas, refuses to get on board with it wholeheartedly. Traditional and largely poverty-stricken families believe education to be a waste of time and their children would rather benefit by garnering work experience. Hence, they send their children to work as they feel it not only enhances their child’s chances of getting employed in the long run, but it also makes the household some money in the meanwhile. 

Rajasthan is a state that is primarily plagued with such thinking, considering the poor literacy rate of the state. To improve this and to necessitate education in the lives of students, the Government of Rajasthan has initiated the Higher Education Scholarship scheme. 

About the Higher Education Scholarship Scheme 

The main aim of the scheme is to encourage the poor students of the state towards higher education. Students who have secured 60 per cent marks in their class 12 Rajasthan State secondary education examinations or secured a spot in the first 1 lakh students in the priority list of the board will benefit from the scholarship scheme. 

These students will receive ₹500 per month – for not more than 10 months per annum – which implies that the student will receive ₹5,000 per annum. Alongside this, a scholarship of ₹1,000 per month (₹10,000 annually), will be given to encourage higher studies of disabled students.  

The objective of the scheme is to encourage meritorious students, usually worried about the expenses that come up because of pursuing higher studies, to go forth and receive the education they deserve. 

Application Process for the Rajasthan Scholarship Scheme:

  • Firstly, the student will register himself/herself to apply for the scholarship.
  • User ID and Password will be issued to the student so that he/she will be able to know the status of the application in the future and can apply for a scholarship in any further course as well.
  • After that, the student will apply online, in which all the necessary information will be filled out.
  • It is mandatory for the student to upload all the necessary documents on the online scholarship portal.
  • Once all documents are updated, it is mandatory for the students to lock/save all the information.
  • If students do not see the name of the educational institution, they would then have to contact their educational institution and request them for registration on the portal.

Summing it up

Education truly is the shackle-breaker of poverty, and history time and again bears evidence of the same. It is necessary for students to aim to go higher academically, and they do so with the right push – which, in this case, happens to be something the Government of Rajasthan seems to provide through the implementation of the Rajasthan Higher education scholarship. 

With this, more students will aspire to pursue higher education in the years to come, and is limited due to the fear of finances will be a thing of the past.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
