Dr. Kalam Scholarship scheme - Providing Higher Education to deserving school students
The project was started in 2017, we identify deserving school students who are academically good and willing to pursue their higher education and extend our hands in all their educational needs. We give priority to single parent/orphan/poor students preferably from government schools. We also consider students under the above mentioned categories from private schools with excellent academic record.
The scholarship includes a financial support for paying their college fees, transportation fees, exam fees, hostel fees, mess fees and book fees. The scholarship would be continued if their academic performance is consistent.Our Selection Process 12th Students with good attitude and academic record in both 10th and 12th are referred by our team members directly or such students can directly apply to our Trust seeking for educational support. As a first step the students have to submit the filled request form along with necessary documents to the committee. The committee after receiving the documents conducts a telephonic interview; the second phase involves physical verification of candidates by one of our Trust volunteers. Based on the verification students would be short listed and are then called for a personal interview. On successful completion of all the above process if the committee recommends the candidate as a genuine deserving candidate, he/she would be included as our beneficiary to receive the befits from the trust. These processes are followed to ensure that only deserving candidates get benefited.
