Sahnewal, June 19
The release of post-matric scholarship for SC students this year has come as a big relief for them, especially at the time when their exams are drawing nearer and they have to seek clearance from their respective institutions to get their roll numbers.
Sukhdeep Kaur, a student of a local college, said she has received an amount of Rs 7,500 as scholarship and it means a lot to her. “My father is a daily wager. I could not arrange the fee in time. I was getting repeated calls to deposit the fee or my roll number would be withheld. My father is out of work due to the lockdown and could not arrange the money. But the day I found the scholarship amount transferred in my account, my joy knew no bounds,” she said.
“The scholarship amount has come as a big relief for us. We did not have even the slightest inclination of receiving the same. While my father had remained adamant to enable me to complete my graduation and arranged the amount on interest, it had not been the same in the case for other students,” rued another.
“The pending amount if cleared can enable us to pursue further studies, otherwise we will end up as simple graduates,” said another student.
