Adapting a bottom-up approach where various stakeholders come together to achieve UHET’s objectives.
1. Awareness Creation
- Creating awareness about the scholarship scheme to the Higher Secondary students.
- Disseminate key information through daily newspapers and circulars to all the Higher Secondary Schools in the project regions.

3. Face-to-face Interview with Students & Parents
After scrutinizing the application documents, parents are called for one-to-one interviews to asses / understand students’ academic aspirations and family economic status of the family.
4. Home Visits to examine the socio-economic status
In order to select appropriate candidates for scholarship, UHET makes home visits to every individual applicant’s home to observe and assess the applicant’s socio-economic status and living condition of the family. A report is then prepared on the individual including details such as education and occupation of parents and family members, the family living conditions will be taken into consideration for determining the scholarship eligibility.
5. Selection of eligible Students
The reports are submitted to the trustees, who select the eligible underprivileged students for the UHET scholarship.

The selected candidates can avail this scholarship support until completion of their chosen courses.)
