AP Jagananna Videshi Vidya Deevena Scheme Registration
AP state government has issued notification to revive the scheme aimed at extending financial assistance to the students pursuing higher education in top rated foreign universities. The students will be granted 100% fee-reimbursement if they get admission in the top 100 universities in world as per the QS ratings. The scheme has been renamed as Jagananna Videshi Vidya Deevena from previous Dr BR Ambedkar Videshi Vidya Deevana.
However, the government has completely revised the guidelines of the scheme to help meritorious students from the economically backward classes to realise their dream of pursuing higher education in foreign universities. Now all the students with below 8 lakh annual income could file their applications. “Students from SC, BC, minority, EBC and Kapu sections are eligible to apply for assistance.”
While the students who secured 60 % per cent marks in the qualifying degree (graduation) level are eligible to pursue masters, students who want to pursue MBBS abroad should have cleared NEET. The state government would reimburse 50% or up to Rs. 50 lakh to the students who secured seats in 100-200 ranking universities across the globe.
The government advised the eligible students to file their applications on www.jnanabhumi.ap.gov.in website to screen their applications. The government has already constituted a high-level committee headed by chief secretary to scrutinise the applications. All the eligible students would get direct assistance from the government without interference of anyone.
