Madhya Pradesh is among the states in India that have long been famous for providing excellent educational facilities and a favorable educational ambiance for children. There are several educational schemes provided by the government, private institutions, and NGOs. However, none of these schemes can provide equal opportunity to children in terms of academic excellence, social development, economic status, and exposure to international cultures. This is the main reason that the Madhya Pradesh Scholarship Fund has been very successful in helping underprivileged children to pursue their education with financial support.
Scholarships for Members of Parliament i.e., MP scholarships are an initiative run by the Government of Madhya Pradesh to provide federal aid to students who live in the “Heart of the Country,” Madhya Pradesh. The government has established its own system scholarship portal to list all of its scholarship programs for students from Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Other Backward Classes (OBC), and Minorities. The primary goal of instituting these MP scholarships is to encourage education within the state.
