Hyderabad: The process of selection of eligible candidates for Minorities Overseas Scholarship Scheme has been finalized. Out of 513 applications received, 211 candidates have been found eligible. Earlier, 280 candidates were shortlisted for the award of this scholarship but later strict conditions were applied and only those candidates who passed GRE/GMAT were selected. Although some universities do not insist GRE/GMAT qualifications, Govt. wanted to ensure that the students seek admissions in reputed universities which consider only those candidates who have cleared these tests.
Govt. of Telangana has allocated Rs. 25 crore for the implementation of this scheme. After the release of budgeted amount, this scheme would be implemented. The list of selected candidate can be seen on cgg website.
