About the Program
Right to education, with a gesture by the Government of India, has become the fundamental right of every child. With one-third of the world’s poor population residing in India (World Bank, 2005), education for every child is a farfetched dream. With the aim to make education accessible to every child and especially the girl child, the Avikrishna Scholarship Program supports education of children from disadvantaged families.
This Program sponsors children for their primary, secondary as well as higher education in the field of their choice.
ACT scans through the applications received for Scholarship Program. The family status, capabilities of the aspirant child are assessed and continuous support to take care of school fees, uniforms and books are extended. All payment in the shape of scholarships are made to the schools and uniforms & books supplier. Continuous appraisal of the performance of the child is vouched in each semester. And wherever required the extra coaching is provided to the sponsored child.
