Kochi: The Maulana Azad Education Foundation has invited applications for scholarships for meritorious girl students from the minority communities. The scholarship is given to meet the tuition fees, expenses for books, hostel fees etc. Only girl students of Muslim, Christian, Sikh and Buddhist communities are eligible for the scholarship.
Only those students whose parents’ annual income is below Rs 1 lakh need apply. The income certificate from the part of the parents, and not from the school, should be submitted along with the application form. The students should have obtained 55% marks in the 10th standard exam and secured seats in 11th standard or +1.

Students once selected for the scholarship will not be eligible for it again.
