Scholarship for Students

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

- Nelson Mandela

"Education is today a basic necessity of life. It is a key determinant in a nation’s economic, social and cultural progress. In a society like India, where disparities and differences on all possible parameters are significant, education can contribute in bridging this gap.

Education facilitates in providing access to equal opportunities for all. It has the potential to help the marginalised and poor come out of the poverty trap. It indeed is a great leveller.

While schooling provided by the government is free, there are several additional costs of education (such as examination fees, purchase of text books, stationery etc) which the poor are unable to afford. These costs, their poverty and limited livelihood options dissuade them from investing in education of their children.

The Government of India and State/Union Territory governments, and some NGOs, over the years have been announcing several scholarships, financial assistance schemes and incentives to help ease the burden of the financial cost of education. Socially marginalized groups (such as Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes, Minority communities and girls) and those from economically weaker sections (such as Below Poverty Line families) have been the special target groups of these scholarships and incentives. The scholarships also aim at identifying meritorious students and motivate them to pursue higher education with the cushion of financial support. .............................."
