Patiala 14 June
Aryans College of Engineering, Rajpura-Patiala launched special scholarship scheme under “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” for the girls of Patiala. This was announced in a press conference held today by Aryans Group at Hotel, Flyover, Patiala. Chairman, Aryans Group of Colleges, Dr. Anshu Kataria, presided over the event. A toll-free helpline 1800-30000-388 was also launched on the occasion. Interested girls can apply for the scholarship before 20th June by giving a missed call on the same.
Dr. Anshu Kataria while addressing the press conference said that under this scheme Aryans will shortlist 50 girls wherein 50% of scholarship will be provided by the college and rest 50% will be financed in shape of Education Loan on Engineering and Diploma Courses. Recently Union Minister Sh. Vijay Sampla launched this scholarship in Aryans.
Registrar, Aryans Group, Prof. B.S Sidhu while speaking on the occasion said that the scholarship will be provided on merit cum means basis. The scheme will enable the financially constrained girls to explore their potential in engineering and technology fields who either are choosing short term and other courses.
Ms. Shashi Katnawer, Media coordinator said that around 2500 students from all over the country are pursuing their higher education under various scholarship schemes provided by Aryans. Few of the schemes are Dr. Kiran Bedi scholarship, scholarship for Army personnel, Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao scholarship, scholarship for tribal area students.
Ms. Ashima Dhiman, Academic coordinator said, “girls are doing well in sports, education, health sectors, and agriculture but the ratio is very less in technical courses due to their less interest, High fee structure. The Scheme will encourage girls to explore their potential in engineering and technology fields with lesser fee structure at Aryans.”
It is to be mentioned that the each one of us has a collective responsibility towards this end; otherwise, we would not only be harming the current generation but also inviting a “terrible crisis” for the future generations. He appealed that maximum girl should take the benefit of the scheme so that dropout rate among girl students could be lowered.
