Girls of Hilly areas to be benefitted by Aryans Scholarship
Mohali 20 March
Chief Minister, Himachal Pradesh, Sh. Virbhadra Singh today launched a special scholarship scheme of Aryans Group of Colleges, Chandigarh. This scholarship is for needy and deserving girls of Himachal and other hilly areas under “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” scheme.
On the occasion CM, HP also launched a toll-free helpline i.e 1800-30000-388. Interested students can apply for the scholarship by giving a missed call on that. Chairman, Aryans Group of Colleges, Dr. Anshu Kataria was also present on the occasion.
Sh. Virbhadra Singh while appreciating the initiative taken by Aryans said that the Group has opened the doors for needy and deserving Girls of HP. “It’s very difficult to pursue the quality technical education in the Colleges of other states and that too near Chandigarh because of unaffordable expenses, but this step would foster their desire to pursue technical education, by paying lesser fees” he added.
He further added that 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.
Chairman, Aryans Group of Colleges, Dr. Anshu Kataria while giving information about the scheme said that under this scheme 25 girls would be benefitted in which 50% of the scholarship will be provided by the college and rest 50% will be financed in shape of Education Loan in B.Tech and Diploma Courses.
Dr. Kataria further said that 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.
Prof. A.P Jain, Director, Aryans Group 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.
