National Means-cum-Merit Scholarship Scheme (NMMS) Olympiad Prize & Awards

It's an Indian government initiative to support talented young individuals who are economically disadvantaged. The government has created a platform to enhance the children 's career prospects by providing financial assistance in terms of scholarship at their secondary and higher secondary levels. Even though it’s a central government initiative, the state government looks after the process and selects the students according to the eligibility criteria of NMMS scholarship.

  • Under this NMMS scheme, 100,000 scholarships will be awarded to the meritorious/Scholar students whose parental income is not more than Rs. 1,50,000/- per annum from all sources.
  • The scheme would provide reservation to different sections of students as per the State rules; as different States/UTs have their own rules of reservation.
  • The government will provide these scholarships every year to the regular students in class IX in a Government School which will be renewed for classes X, XI, and XII. Thus the awards will be for a maximum period of four years.
  • The State Governments Administrations shall conduct a separate examination for the selection of students for the award of the National Meanscum-Merit Scholarships in the State/UTs.

About National Means-cum-Merit Scholarship Scheme (NMMS)

The Government Sponsored Scheme “National Means-cum-Merit Scholarship Scheme (NMMS)” was first launched in May 2008. The scheme was designed to provide financial assistance for those who are economically backward but are exceptionally good at studies. In one of the research done by NSSO the dropout rate was high in secondary school (9th class - 10th class) which is nearly 17% than that of elementary and upper secondary. So the Indian government had taken an initiative to slow down this trend. students whose parents income is less than 1.5 LPA are eligible for the scholarship to utilize this benefit. The State Bank of India will fork out money directly to their bank accounts.
