Mumbai: Avanse Financial Services, a new age, education-focused NBFC, in partnership with Ekam Satt Foundation, a trust conducting social activities in the field of education and health for defence personnel, launched “Academia Scholarship” program for students coming from defence families. The move will empower dreams of fifty bright Indian students with INR 50,000 each. The amount can be used for formal education as well as alternate courses. The applicants can opt for any Post-Graduation and skill enhancement course of their choice. The duration of this scholarship program is from 1st March 2020 to 31st March 2020.
Avanse as an organization believes in giving back to the community in every way possible. With the help of this scholarship program, the organization has created a platform to give back to the defence community who serve this country selflessly and make remarkable sacrifices every day. This scholarship money can be used to pay the students’ tuition fees or any other fees that the institute will be charging during the course. As Avanse strongly believes in backing deserving Indian students and encouraging bright minds, good academic scores will be a key enabler. This program was launched at the prestigious Ekam Satt – Unity Concert: The 50th Symphony.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Amit Gainda, CEO, Avanse Financial Services said, “Avanse Academia Scholarship for the children of defence personnel is a platform launched to show our gratitude to the defence community for their selfless services. The sacrifices made by their families are often overlooked. Their children either spend a lot of time without their parent or if they are with their family, they spend a large portion of their school years moving from one base to the other. While there is no true way to repay for their sacrifices, we believe that this program will help them take a step towards their academic goals. This program was conceptualized keeping in mind our mission of making quality education affordable and accessible for every deserving Indian student.”
