Program 2

Excellence in education through scholarships

To bring about a transformation in the lives of academically brilliant and economically underprivileged students through scholarships
An important element of AEEF is its scholarship program. 50 needy and bright students will be supported across India. The scholarship will be awarded to students at any academic level after passing high school in any area and at all levels of education. Selection of students is based on merit-cum-means. The actual amount of award will be determined based on financial need of the student (upto Rs. 1000/month). An initial commitment is made for one year, but the recipients are given to understand that they will be supported to the highest degree level as long as they perform well, still in need of financial assistance and the funds are available at AEEF. Any substantial financial aid from other sources precludes the award of this fellowship.

Inspire the next generation of underprivileged communities to achieve self-esteem and self-reliance through education

It currently has 450 students (from Grade 1-10). Many of the students are unable to pay the school fee (~Rs 450/month) and are supported by donations. AEEF is planning to sponsor 50 students (Rs 5400/student/year) at this school. An initial commitment is made for one year, but the recipients are given to understand that they will be supported upto 10th grade as long as they perform well and the funds are available at AEEF.
