Maha DBT Scholarship 2024-25

The Government of Maharashtra launched various welfare programs to support the education of meritorious students by providing them with financial assistance. Mainly students who are meritorious but deprived of education due to their educational expenses are helped by these welfare schemes. Many students in India come from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. The ever-rising cost of education in India overwhelms these students and puts enormous pressure on the students and their families.
