Q. I will be appearing for Class XII Board exams next year in 2021. Due to financial constraints (my father was laid off during this pandemic and he was the only bread earner), I might not be able to pursue further studies in mathematics. I’m a good student and wish to study further. M’am could you please suggest any scholarships that I could apply for?

A. Among several others, you might want to check out the prestigious Vahani Scholarship for meritorious students. To qualify, you should have scored 85% and above in class 10 and your consolidated family income must not exceed 1.5 lakh per annum.
The online applications for the academic year 2021 opened in September and will close on December 1, 2020.
The selection process comprises a review of online applications, followed by interviews of selected candidates in December 2020-January 2021. The final selection will be completed by January/February 2021 – even before your Board exams!
You’ll receive a conditional offer, subject to final Class XII results and admission to appropriate institutions.
The Vahani Scholarship also includes career counseling and mentorship, personality grooming, along with monetary assistance.
