My sincere thank to Nirmala (Cognizant) for sharing with me the emailer on scholarships for meritorius students with poor financial background. I would like to share the message with other interested readers so that it can reach and cater to more needy students.
A Bangalore-based NGO ("Prerna"), backed up and supported by Infosys foundation is helping out poor students with excellent academic records. The NGO conducts a written test and those who clear the test stand to qualify for eligible financial assistance for their further studies. The current eligibility is stated as cleared tenth standard examinations in April 2009 with a score more than 80 per centage.
