UGC Scheme for Mentoring NAAC Accreditation Aspirant Institutions to promote Quality Assurance in Higher Education
The main objective of the scheme is to enhance the overall quality of the mentee institutions and Mentoring the Non-Accredited Higher Education Institutions to enable them to get accredited.
The mentor & mentee can be a government/aided/private/self- financing Institution. The mentor institution should be NAAC accredited with an A grade having an overall score of 3.26 and above. Any such institution recognized under 2 (f) & 12 (B) of UGC Act 1956 will be eligible to receive grants for the purpose from UGC. Since these grants will be utilized for mentoring the institution and not for creation of any infrastructure, the private institution can also receive the funding as they do so for student and teacher centric schemes.
