Incepted in 2004, this initiative was specifically designed to support the academic endeavors of the children of active government employees. The primary goal is to foster and applaud the accomplishments of gifted students in their Board and University exams, ultimately recognizing their academic excellence. Initially targeting the top ten position holders, the merit scholarship program has undergone successive enhancements to accommodate the growing pool of talented candidates. The most recent upgrade occurred in March 2021.
