Punjabi University’s department of botany yesterday announced that the GOPA Foundation would provide fellowships worth Rs 11,000 each to two meritorious students of the department from current year . Dr JS Dargan, who is president of the Gopa Foundation, is also a former member of the department. Dargan said the foundation had been trying to help the underprivileged children to get quality education and that the foundation was also bearing the education and daily expenses of many schoolchildren of Chandigarh and its adjoining areas.

VC Prof Arvind said the university would extend all possible help to needy and gifted students and wished that other departments would also make similar efforts. A book ‘Fight to the End and an Inspiring Journey of Grit and Optimism’ written by Dargan in memory of his late wife was also released on the occasion. — TNS
