About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Educational Aid is a Scholarship programme to support deprived students. Assistance is provided to the students by providing a part of their educational cost per year until they acquire their first degree, right from Nursery to Graduation. The statistics over the last five decades depict lower rate of dropout under the scheme and students are determined to achieve their goal.
Students are selected through a draw of lots. Forms are issued to the selected student to acquire their academic and financial detail. Payments are made directly into their account. Every year students have to submit their results as soon as it is declared to renew their scholarships. This process assists them to ascertain the progress which further curtails the dropout ratio.
