Isha Education's Update
Need based scholarships and fee subsidies are provided to deserving students through this program. A comprehensive allocation process ensures only students truly in need receive scholarships/ fee subsidies. Even nominal fees are too much for some rural families. Recognizing this challenge, Isha Vidhya provides scholarships which cover students' tuition, notebooks and textbooks. Without the scholarship support; these children cannot access or afford the high-quality school education. Sponsors are matched with specific students and receive regular updates including photos, letters and progress reports.
