“The effort is to facilitate the education of deserving candidates from all sections,” a UGC official told Hindustan Times. Interested candidates can apply for the scholarships till the 31st of December, 2018.

There was some confusion regarding the initial notification by the UGC. It had mentioned only UGC NET and CSIR NET December 2017 and June 2018 as the qualifying criteria, the new notification, however, does not mention it. The new notification states,  “All candidates who belong to one of the minority communities i.e. Muslim, Sikh, Parsi, Buddhist, Christian and Jain and who are enrolled for full-time MPhil / Ph.D degree in Indian Universities/ Institutions/ Colleges recognized under Section 2(f) and Section 3 of UGC Act, 1956 and CBSE/NTA-UGC-NET/JRF or CSIR-NET/JRF may apply.”
