Realty major Puravankara Group has partnered with ‘Vidyasaarathi’, the online scholarship platform by Protean eGov Technologies (formerly known as NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure). The Puravankara Scholarship Programme has been extended to 24 students across 9 engineering colleges in Pune, Maharashtra. Through this initiative, Puravankara intends to support students pursuing higher education.
Apart from their academic performance, the eligibility criteria included students whose annual family income is less than Rs 5 lakh. Students with a single parent or whose families were affected by Covid-19 were given special preference. A cumulative amount of Rs 10 lakh has been disbursed through the scholarship and will continue to be disbursed every year.
“We have a long-standing commitment to making education accessible, especially to students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. We strongly believe that through the Puravankara Scholarship, we are taking a step towards increasing their employability and securing their future. By collaborating with Protean eGov Technologies Limited, we aim to create meaningful learning opportunities and advance STEM education,” commenting on the scholarship programme, Amanda Puravankara, Executive Director, Puravankara Group, said.
Protean eGov Technologies has set up Vidyasaarathi, a technology-driven platform. It manages the entire scholarship lifecycle, including validating the applications, award of scholarships and disbursement of funds.
“We are delighted to partner with Puravankara. Our goal is to make education financing easier for aspiring students across India and encourage more and more students to dream big and work hard towards fulfilling their dreams,” speaking on the partnership, Gopa Kumar TN, Chief Business Officer, Protean eGov Technologies, stated.
In 2020, Provident Housing, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Puravankara, had collaborated with Protean eGov Technologies to launch the Provident Housing Scholarship in Goa, which has benefited 64 students in the last 2 years.
