She has fallen into financial crises as her parents are unable to support her to continue her studies. She has already completed her first semester of the course and now second semester ahs begun. The date to pay here fee is drawing near day by day and the student is worried about here future.
    I would like to ask you if she can apply for scholarship from My Himachal’s HOPE Scholarship Program.
    Hope to have a positive response from your end.
    Thanks and best regards

  • Hi Sumit,

    I appreciate your initiative and good work that you are doing. I am sorry to say that My Himachal’s HOPE Scholarship Program provides for scholarships only to students currently enrolled in classes from 8th and upto 12th at this time.

    I wish you good luck with your efforts in this regard.

    Thanks!

  • *** Last Date of Application Extended upto 15th February 2011 ***

    We have received feedback from potential applicants in some areas of Himachal Pradesh stating that their schools have been closed for the month of January 2011 and are due to open on 1st/2nd of February 2011. Therefore, it would be difficult for them to send us HOPE Application forms duly signed by School officials by January 31st 2011.

    My Himachal has granted their request and extended the Last Date of receiving Applications to February 15th 2011.

    Any applications that are POST-MARKED February 15th 2011 will be accepted.
