The NSDL infrastructure e-governance limited has created a unique scholarship scheme for students. In our country, there are many meritorious and deserving students who are missing out on their basic right to education due to hefty fees and course rates.
To provide such students with financial assistance and lessen the gap between education and financial board rooms, the Vidyasaarathi scholarship was envisaged. It is an online scholarship scheme for students.
The scholarship is mainly intended to help deserving students pursue their dreams of engineering/technology (BE/ B.Tech course) and receives its main funding sponsor from ACC Limited. It is basically provided for the undergraduate level of studies.
This scholarship is brought together by ACC in association with Vidyasaarathi scholarship to aid students in pursuing higher studies in BE/B.Tech Streams.
Also, the scholarship is particularly available, and only those candidates who are residing close to the ACC plants are eligible to apply. Neither the employees of ACC nor their children can actually apply for the scholarship.
Vidyasaarathi by itself is a huge umbrella wherein financial schemes are available in plenty, and candidates may apply according to their portfolio. These schemes are actually designed by corporate, industrial establishments, and fundraising organizations wherein they have the freedom to promote and develop their own unique kind of schemes that will provide financial aid to students.
