Educate an underprivileged engineering student

Impact

Every monthly donation can help educate more students like Anet

Anet hails from a humble family from Kochi and aspires to become a successful engineer. Her other aspiration is to serve the down-trodden. Anet lost her father recently, whom she considered her best friend and role model. The family has become financially handicapped as he was the only breadwinner in the family.

Her mother started working in a Montessori school to manage the family expenses but that couldn't cover both family and educational expenses. Anet was identified for a scholarship from FFE. Due to her exemplary performance, she has received the scholarship in consecutive years.

With the support from FFE, she now has the confidence of finishing her education and supporting her family.

About The NGO

Foundation for Excellence India Trust (FFE India Trust)

The Foundation for Excellence (FFE) is a registered non-profit, based in the USA and was founded by the serial entrepreneur, Dr. Prabhu Goel. The Foundation for Excellence India Trust (FFEIT) was registered in 2003 as a public Charitable Trust in India to expand the scope of FFE’s support and works in association with FFE. It has the same objectives as FFE, but raises resources from donors worldwide.

Foundation for Excellence was formed with the mission to help economically underprivileged and academically bright students complete their higher education through a Scholarship Program. The objective of the program is to help these students and their families transition from a low to middle income group in a single generation. The scholarship program also envisions a multiplier effect as each scholar will then go on to support at least 2 other scholars in his/her lifetime.

In twenty five years since its inception in 1994, FFE has already helped over 22,400 scholars across India, changing their lives for posterity; over 63,800 scholarships in excess of USD 27 million (~Rs. 189 Crores) have been awarded to students in 27 states in India. FFE has a network of over 500 volunteer “facilitators” distributed throughout India who identify potential awardees, verify the genuineness of their need, and act as mentors once the scholarship is awarded. This ensures that only genuinely deserving students are awarded scholarships.

2019-20 has been a record-breaking year on multiple fronts. FFE awarded a total of 6383 scholarships amounting to Rs. 27.27 Crores during FY 2019-20. Of these, 4756 scholarships were awarded to Engineering students and 1565 to Medical students. FFE also launched scholarships supporting 2 new disciplines in FY 2019-20, awarding 17 LLB scholarships to students pursuing law, and 45 scholarships to students pursuing BPharm degrees in India. FY 2019-20 saw the largest and most involved alumni participation in the "Circle of Giving", with more than 1500 alumni contributing in excess of Rs. 1 Crore to FFE, another milestone that was achieved in close collaboration with FFE’s alumni.

Story from the field


Drawing inspiration from an eminent engineer, Dr.K.L. Rao from Andhra Pradesh, Likitha aspires to become a successful engineer and do research in the field of Electronics. She belongs to a humble family comprising of her parents and one sibling in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. Her father is a farmer who takes land on lease and earns a living and manages to run the family.
Her mother is a homemaker. Yet, they believe in the power on education and consistently encourage the children to do well in academics. Likitha considers her parents as her support system and her biggest strength.
Apart from studies, sports is her area of interest. She aims at working hard to give a comfortable life to her family. In future,she intends to set aside a part of her income to assist financially deprived students to pursue higher education. Her family and she are highly obliged to the financial assistance given to her by her donor in the form of a scholarship. This has given her an enhanced sense of confidence and has reduced the financial burden on her family to a certain extent.
Likitha is currently pursuing her 4th Year of Engineering at the Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology,Bhopal,Madhya Pradesh and will be completing her Engineering Degree in April 2019.
