Students from Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh who have passed out their higher secondary (XII) and are looking to pursue undergraduate courses in other parts of India can now opt for SSS under Pradhan Mantri Uchchatar Shiksha Protsahan (PM-USP).

The scholarship scheme which was constituted in 2010 by then-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh aims at providing financial assistance and educational support to students from the region. These scholarships are often designed to help students pursue higher education and skill development opportunities.

A total of 5000 fresh scholarships are provided by AICTE to encourage the youth of J&K and Ladakh to pursue higher studies outside the UTs. 

The scholarship launched in the year 2011, provides academic fee (tuition and other admissible fee) and maintenance allowance (to bear hostel & mess expenses, cost of books and other incidental charges). 

Out of 5000, 2070 scholarships are for General Degree Courses, 2830 for Professional/Engineering courses and 100 for Medical Courses. 

The number of scholarships for Engineering and Medical Studies are subject to change. Ideally, these schemes are intended to promote education, empower youth, and facilitate their access to educational resources that may otherwise be limited due to socio-economic factors or regional circumstances.
