Prathidhwani Education Scholarship Scheme ( PES 2015 ) to help excellent students from a poor financial background. The official inauguration of the program – PES held at Park Center of Technopark on 14th October 2015.
The PES 2015 was inaugurated by Sri P Vijayan IPS. The selected 51 students along with their parents attended the function and received the first term scholarship of Rs.6000/- (First 2 quarters). The total scholarship amount is Rs.24000/-
Among the 117 shortlisted students, Prathidhwani was able to identify 51 sponsors even though initially the program targeted only 25 eligible students. All the selected students, their parents and sponsors were present in the function. We got a good response for the campaign and few more people interested to help the students, which in turn will increase the reach of the Scholarship to more students.
In the inaugural speech, Sri. P.Vijayan IPS motivated the students to dream high and work towards achieving their goals. He also emphasized our responsibility as a citizen to contribute back to the society. He made sure to meet and chat to each student individually.
