Empowering Girls Through Higher Education

Gone are the days when girls were not allowed to receive education along with their male siblings. But things have changed a lot.

There are 16 government colleges, 34 government aided colleges and 20 private colleges in Haryana, which are exclusively for girls. Then there is no shortage of professional colleges for girls in the state. There are nine universities and large number of colleges in the state. There are well­ built, hostels with all the modem amenities in all the colleges and universities. Separate mess and canteen facilities are available for, boys and girls. Hotel facilities have played an important role in increasing enrollment of girl students.

Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said, "The government is committed to making the state an education hub.

North India's first women university named after great educationist Bhagat Phool Singh had been set up in rural area of Khanpur Kalan in district Sonipat and now a medical college too is being set up there to inspire women living in rural areas to take interest in medical education." It is one of the initiatives taken by the government of Haryana to empower women in the state. The university has various affiliated colleges under it that impart education and training in professional courses.

The Haryana government is trying to empower the female students and nuture talent amongst girls through various schemes. A scheme was started in the year 2005-06. Under this scheme, women cells have been established in all the government colleges of the state to organise various activities to create awareness among students on gender related issues.

Earn While You Learn scheme has been running successfully in the state to provide incentives to students. In this scheme, a student can earn up to Rs 1,200 per month.

Haryana Scheduled Castes and Backward Classes Welfare Department under 'Anusuchit Jati Chatra Uchh Shiksha Protsahan Yojana' give scholarships ranging from Rs 5,000 to Rs 14, 000 to beneficiary students of science, commerce, technical and vocational courses for getting higher education. Similarly, universities in the state are also providing various opportunities to the underprivileged through various schemes so that they can also have access to higher education.

The state government has introduced merit scholarship scheme for under graduate girl students.

Under this scheme, scholarship is awarded to the girl students, who after passing 10+2 class with at least 60 per cent marks, were studying in any government institution and pursuing general degree course in the government colleges. The amount of, scholarship was Rs 3,000 per student per annum. As many as 4,676 girl students have so far been benefited under the scheme.

For higher education, the state pays 5 per cent of the interest on any educational loan to a girl for education in India or abroad. This initiative taken by the government wilt help in reducing interest and will motivate parents to send girls for higher education.

Anupama, a lecturer from Sirsa, says, "There is no dearth of talent among the girls and the need of the hour ill to make best possible use of their skills in imparting quality education to them. "

There are more female students in the post graduation courses in most of the universities. Girls ate excelling in various fields. Extra­ curricular activities are conducted regularly to enable students to discover and hone their skills in different fields. The students are also encouraged to get involved in sports activities.

Samita, a post-graduate student from Kurukshetra University, says, “The change is definitely coming and it is positive. The large number of girl’s colleges in the state clearly shows that now more girl students are getting higher education. The parents are now equally responsible for their daughter's education."

Haryana's Department of Higher Education bas introduced computer education in almost all government colleges of the state, which open employment opportunities to girl students.

Government is doing a lot to provide higher education to girls; but government efforts alone are not enough to bring in the desired change in society. There is need for people to broaden their horizons regarding various issues pertaining to girls.
