The scheme is  focused on enhancing  opportunities for access to higher education especially to talented but financially constrained students belonging to remote and far flung areas of the country  who despite possessing academic merit, are unable to finance their education.

The fee disbursement would be ensured through a transparent and well defined mechanism. Under this innovative and special scheme, along with tuition fee, the federal government have paid other academic, incidental, or mandatory fees charged by educational institutions as one-off or on a per semester basis of Masters, MS/ M.Phil and PhD students of selected areas.
