It is the policy of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi that students get access to high quality higher education provided by Delhi State Universities irrespective of their caste, creed, economic background, or gender. Delhi Government wants to enhance access to high quality higher education for meritorious economically disadvantaged sections of the society. Many meritorious students from this section find it hard to bear the full tuition fee, though the better-off sections of the society do not face this difficulty. To ease the burden on such meritorious students, the Delhi Govt. proposes a Merit-cum-Means -Linked Financial Assistance Scheme for providing tuition fee reimbursement under the aegis of Delhi Higher Education Aid Trust, with the aim to enhance greater access to high quality higher education for meritorious Students from economically disadvantaged sections of the society. Many students from this section who find it hard to bear the full tuition fee will benefit immensely from the Scheme.
