Scholarship management is another important function of the SPO. Under the Central Sector Scholarship Scheme of Top Class Education for SC and ST students for 2014–2015, three students from the SC community and five students from the ST community were awarded the Scholarship, which includes a laptop worth Rs. 45,000/- and Rs. 3000/- each year for books. The SPO has facilitated the process of securing Government of India Post Matric Scholarships (GoI PMS) for 128 SC students, 94 ST students, 168 OBC (NC) students, 4 from PWD and 16 from the Minority categories. These students also secured exemption from all fees including Dining Hall and Hostel charges for both the academic years. The SPO also facilitated the process of securing other scholarships for students who are not eligible for GoI PMS such as the NTPC Scholarship for SC/ST/PWD, Indira Gandhi Scholarship Scheme for Single Girl Child from the UGC, Scholarship for Persons with Disability sponsored by NHFDC and the Rajiv Gandhi National Scholarship for SC/ST for M.Phil./Ph.D. Scholars.
