Sahayata Trust, a prominent NGO working for the growth of minorities in education, has come up with an innovative idea of arranging entire tuition fee for B.Tech students belonging to minority community. Sahayata Trust will implement this initiative in collaboration with other Govt scholarships and Jahangirabad Institute of Technology located at Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh.
According to Sahayata Trust CEO Syed Aneesuddin, it has been decided to assist 100 minority girls and 50 minority boys. The beneficiaries will be selected through an online test. Students need to get at least 20 out of 50 marks in the online test to make themselves eligible for the financial assistance.
Test can be taken online anytime from July 20, 2017, to August 25, 2017. The test is based on the intermediate syllabus of Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry.
Our main aim is to provide quality education to minority students. We have searched many institutions in North India and selected Jahangirabad Institute of Technology for various reasons. JIT, which is located just 45 minutes drive from Lucknow, has great infrastructure, excellent environment, experienced faculty, well-equipped labs and good hostel facility," Syed Aneesuddin said.
Syed Aneesudin said that the enrollment of students belonging to minority community in higher education is quite low due to various factors. While the primary factor is weak economic conditions, another big reason is inaccessibility to good colleges. In this scenario, the Sahayata Trust wants to provide almost free education to boys who secured more than 85% boys and girls who got 65% and above marks in intermediate by way of paying balance fee after adjusting scholarships to JIT. We are confident that our initiative will help them turn into a full-fledged engineer," he said.
Meanwhile, Maqsood Quadri chairperson of JIT has expressed happiness over tie-up with Sahayata Trust and hoped that this Noble cause would ensure educational upliftment of poor students belonging to minority community in the country.
