The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has started the process of providing scholarships to students of institutional schools in the metropolis.
The KMC itself has started the process for the scholarship as the institutional schools were doing it as required, said KMC Mayor Balen Shah. Education Department of the KMC has issued a notice for students studying in Grade 11 calling applications for scholarships.
The application can be registered online until July 28. The students will have to sit for a test to be selected for the scholarship.
The Education Act, 2028 BS, provides that institutional schools must provide free scholarships to underprivileged, students with disabilities, women, Dalit or indigenous nationality students.
The number of scholarship to be provided should be at least 10 per cent of the total number of students enrolled in the school concerned.
