Sponsor Scholarship for Poor Students. Support Vidya Chetana.

Education is an inevitable for the progress of the society. It is the dream of every child, irrespective of their socio-economic background to receive education.

A society’s progress directly depends on the ability and skill of its human resources. And education plays a key role in creating generations of able and competent citizens. Education has the power to change the entire landscape of a society by making it sustainably prosperous. While every family wants their children to be educated, economic disparity creates a gap in who gets the opportunity to receive education and who doesn’t. In an effort to bridge this gap, many government schemes and NGOs have scholarship for poor students. These schemes and scholarships support them to complete their education and pursue their goals. 

Vidya Chetana – A Scholarship Program for Higher Education

An initiative of Youth for Seva, Vidya Chetana was launched in 2009. The objective of this initiative was to support education of children hailing from underprivileged socio-economic backgrounds. This includes children hailing from challenging financial backgrounds, specially-abled children, and children who lost their parents during COVID-19 pandemic. This NGO scholarship for poor students supports higher education in the fields of PUC (10+2), Degree, Engineering and Medical Courses. In the past 12 years, Vidya Chetana Scholarship Program has supported education of 5,775 students across 10 States of India.

Stories of transformation 

When you sponsor a child’s education, you not only help the child to receive education, but also uplift his or her entire family. You empower students to achieve their goals in life that enables them to break out of the shackles of poverty and lack. Their success significantly impacts the entire family too. And as resourceful individuals themselves, they know the importance of education. So, they not only educate their children, but also contribute towards education of less privileged children. This creates a ripple effect, ultimately resulting in generations of educated, resourceful, self-reliant citizens. With the support of over 3,000 generous donors, Vidya Chetana was able to support education of many students. Below are two success stories among the thousands of students who were able to attain their ambitions:

  • Sahana, a BTech Graduate from Presidency University, Bengaluru and a Vidya Chetana Alumni says, “The scholarship I received from Vidya Chetana helped me to complete my final year BTech, following which I also secured a placement in IBM. I am extremely grateful to Vidya Chetana for helping me achieve my goal.” 
  • Yathish K.S., a B.E. Mechanical Graduate from RVCE, Bengaluru and a Vidya Chetana Alumni says, “I could complete my Engineering only because of the scholarship I received from Vidya Chetana. After completing my studies, I immediately got a placement in DXA Technology. I am thankful to the team of Vidya Chetana for supporting my education.”
