In a significant move, the Karnataka Budget 2023-24 has reintroduced the fee reimbursement scheme for students of minority communities pursuing BSc/nursing courses in both government and private colleges. This initiative aims to provide crucial financial support to minority students in their pursuit of higher education.

Previously applicable to post-matric and merit-cum-means scholarships, the revamped scheme's eligibility criteria include Karnataka domicile, membership in a minority community, enrollment in BSc/nursing courses, and payment of course fees. The scheme will reimburse the difference amount of the fees paid by eligible students.
