There are scholarships for students pursuing their education in High School.

As a High school student, I got some financial aid as a scholarship from a cooperative bank in our area. There is a cooperative bank in our Taluk. There will be a board of Directors for such banks. The bank can spend some money for supporting education for some students. Such banks will take two aspects for deciding the beneficiaries. One is the merit and the second is the financial position of the bank. I was awarded a scholarship by that bank from class 7th to 10th class. The school administration will know and generally, they will send a circular or place it on the school notice board. Eligible students can apply through the school.

Another type of scholarship is from the corporates around that school. I was working in a corporate and the manufacturing facility of that corporate was in a rural area and almost 5 villages nearby. Under CSR Scheme, the company announce scholarships to high school students in the government high schools situated in those 5 villages. The first and the second rank students of a class will get this scholarship. Some cash award, uniform. shoes. textbooks and notebooks were being given to such students. Each school is 5 classes. That means from each school 10 students were awarded this scholarship. 5 high schools that means 50 students were getting benefitted. I rank holder was getting a higher amount than the 2nd rank holder. Many corporates are practising such schemes. The high school administration will know about such scholarships available to the students of their school They will put up a notice and coordinate with corporate and get the benefits.

A person who wants to know about various scholarships should contact their administration well in advance and take the necessary steps to apply for such scholarships.

Apart from such financial aid. there are many scholarships that are being given to merit students and poor students by state governments as well the central government. Again the full information about such scholarships can be taken from the office of the Head Master of the School.

The following 5 are government-announced scholarships for high school students.

1. Pre-Matric Scholarships Scheme for Minorities: This is for children belonging to minority sections and who are poor. Students of Class 12. to Class 10 are eligible.

2. National Means Cum Merit Scholarship: This is a scholarship for 9th-class students. Students who secured 55% marks in the 8th class can apply. The basis for selection is a written test.

3. Pre-matric Scholarship for Students with Disabilities: Based on the income of the family this scholarship will be given to otherwise challenged students in 9th class and 10th class.

4. CBSE Merit Scholarship for Single Girl Child: This is applicable to the only daughter in a family. Girls who are studying 11th class in a BSE school can apply for this scholarship.

5. National Talent Search Examination NTSE: This examination is of two types. One is at the state level and the examination will be conducted by the state government. The national-level examination will be conducted by NCERT.

There are many others. The parents of the students are advised to get in touch with the school administration and request the information.

It is important to prepare a strong application that showcases your achievements, goals, and potential. This could include transcripts, recommendation letters, essays, or other supporting documents. Make sure that the application is complete and submitted well before the deadline.

Follow up: After submitting the application, follow up with the organization to ensure that it has been received and is being considered. If you are shortlisted for an interview or further evaluation, make sure that you are prepared and present yourself in the best possible light.

Be persistent: Finally, remember that getting a scholarship can be a competitive process, and it may take some time and effort to secure one. Do not give up if you are not successful at first. Keep trying and exploring other opportunities.
