NEW DELHI: The Akshaya Patra Foundation through its AVSAR Scholarship Programme for school dropout students due to financial constraints has tried to bridge the gap between the students and scholarships.

In 2019-20, scholarships worth Rs 2,33,02,871 were provided to over 1,547 students across the country. All the students were chosen based on merit and need after profiling over 14 thousand students and reviewed 5,831 applications.

As per a release issued by the foundation, AVSAR initiative is aimed to “identify deserving students from underserved sections of society and nurture their aspiration by providing financial aid.” It empowers students in Government and Government-aided schools, motivates them to make the best use of Government and private scholarships and helps address the issue of school dropouts due to financial constraints.
