It is observed that number of girls as against boys in certain states is declining which is a matter of great concern. The females are even forced to give birth to male child. In such circumstances education of women needs to be used and effective means for their empowerment and education will prepare them to have a control over their lives. The mindset which militates against the girl child could not keep pace with economic progress and literacy. The Govt. of India declared elementary education as a basic human right of every child. The Union Government of India has taken various steps to uplift the status of women by implementing various schemes including free education for girls.

In order to achieve and promote girls education, UGC has introduced a Post Graduate Indira Gandhi Scholarship for Single Girl Child with an aim to compensate direct costs of girl education to all levels especially for such girls who happen to be the only girl child in their family.
The objectives of the proposed scheme are :

a) to support post graduate education of single girl child in non-professional courses only.

b) to recognize the value of observance of small family norm.
i) Any single girl child who happen to be a only child or twin daughter or fraternal daughter in the family, if one son and one daughter is available then girl child will not be considered for scholarship under the scheme.
ii) The scheme is applicable to such a single girl child who has taken admission in regular, full-time 1st year Masters Degree course in any recognized university or a post graduate college.
iii)This scholarship is available to PG-I year student only.
iv) Admission to PG Course in distance education mode is not covered under the scheme.
Age: Girl students up to the age of 30 years at the time of admission in PG courses are eligible.
Candidates admitted in post - graduate first year regular non-professional degree course in any recognized university or a post-graduate college during the current year i.e. 2013-14 are eligible. Students admitted in open universities are not eligible.

Selection will be made by an Expert Committee on the basis of applications which are complete in all respects, received through online mode within the stipulated time frame. The guidelines of the scheme, detailed terms and conditions of the scholarship, eligibility criteria etc. may be seen on UGC website i.e.
The applications may be submitted only through ONLINE mode latest by 09.12.2013 by logging in website

The decision of the Commission with regard to selection of candidates for the award of scholarships shall be final.
1. Applications submitted in hard copy shall not be entertained or considered for award of scholarship in any circumstances whatsoever.
2. Record of candidates, who are not selected, shall not be preserved beyond three months from the date of declaration of results, on UGC website.
