As most of you know by now, this is our first large scale program sponsoring students for their plus one/plus two classes. The news about this scholarship came in three leading newspapers – The Hindu, Mathrubhumi and Deshabhimani and in response we received 240 applications. All the students / parents who applied were contacted over phone by Jyotis education committee and based on a scoring system which evaluates the students academic performance along with giving sufficient weightage to the social and financial conditions, a rank list of 50 students was made. Jyotis education committee visited the houses of these students and selected 25 students for the scholarship of Rs.8000/- each this year.
