A good scholarship program can open up a student's future job options while also allowing them to pursue a specific course or program at a reduced cost. The financial aid is especially beneficial in light of the current Covid-19 issue, as many people have lost their employment during this period. Hundreds of youngsters across India have lost one or both parents, and many have been forced to drop out of school or college as a result. These scholarships are intended to assist such students in continuing their education during these difficult times.
