Child CBSE Udaan Scheme in India: The Detailed Guide

02-08-2022 |

The government has been launching a range of schemes to boost the education of girls in India. It is also taking various measures to promote positivity regarding the birth of a girl child in Indian families – something that was lacking earlier.

One such scheme designed to benefit girl students is the Child CBSE Udaan Scheme. Via this scheme, the government is endeavouring to boost the enrolment of girls in engineering colleges in the country. In this article, we will offer a detailed guide about the Child CBSE Udaan Scheme for girl students in India.

 

The CBSE Udaan Scheme is created by a partnership between the Central Board of Central Education (CBSE) and the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD) of the Government of India. It is designed to offer the necessary study resources to help qualifying female students in Class 11 prepare for the Engineering Entrance Tests.


Core Objectives of the CBSE Udaan Scheme

 

  • Increase the enrolment of girls in engineering and technical institutions
  • Create a support ecosystem for qualifying young girls to better prepare for the entrance exams to various engineering colleges in India
  • Facilitate the narrowing of the understanding gap between higher secondary education and engineering/technical education.

 
Salient Features of the CBSE Udaan Scheme


The Udaan CBSE Scholarship is focused on offering support to young girls to achieve their goal of pursuing technical education in engineering colleges in the country. Here are some salient features of the scheme:

 

  • Thousands of qualifying girl students are offered free of cost assistance for preparing for entrance examinations to engineering colleges
  • Availability of study material via an online portal. This includes reading material and learning videos
  • Virtual classes at nearly 60 centers across India
  •  Free tablets or monetary support to buy tablets for eligible girl students
  • Orientation sessions for students who are not well-versed with using technological tools
  • A wide range of assignments with constructive feedback to students
  • Focus on rectifying the learning process of students
  • Meritorious girl students receive mentoring and peer-learning benefits
  • Guidance and motivation sessions
  • A students helpline service to help clarify doubts in no time
  • Option available for parents to track the learning of their child
  • Continuous tracking and evaluation of every child’s progress with feedback provided to parents too
  • Assistance in applying to the desired engineering colleges.

Give Your Daughter the Wings She Deserves

The CBSE Udaan Scheme is another initiative by the government in partnership with CBSE to allow girls to pursue their dream of becoming technical professionals. As a parent, you also need to ensure that she gets all the support and assistance in pursuing her goals. You must also think about preparing a financial net to fund her education dreams after completing engineering too.

 

Apart from creating a savings fund, you might also want to consider buying a life insurance policy to ensure that she can pursue her career goals without worry, even in your absence. You can choose from a wide range of Tata AIA Life Insurance Plans based on your needs.

 

Conclusion

 CBSE has designed the Udaan Scheme to help girls from lower socio-economic families get the right tools and platform to prepare for a career in engineering. The Scheme helps them enrich their understanding of Mathematics and Science subjects with monetary aid to deserving candidates.
