The centre has collaborated with NSDC that works under the ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship (MSDE) for the PDBFSI programmes.

Commenting on this initiative, SAGE Foundation and TSCFM chairperson, Maya Shahani, said: “Education is one of the most powerful tools that can help affect positive change in society. On this Children’s Day, SAGE Foundation and TSCFM are proud to announce these scholarships that are aligned with the theme for this year, ‘A Better Future for Every Child’. This initiative assumes even more significance in the context of India’s current challenges of high youth unemployment rates and lack of access to education due to insufficient funding, and we are confident that these merit-based scholarships will help youth from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds to build their careers in the BFSI Sector. We, at SAGE Foundation, believe that it is our collective duty as a society to uplift every child and youth through access to the right educational opportunities. To achieve this, we frequently offer scholarships to under-resourced Indian youth, and, so far, our scholarship initiatives have impacted thousands of youth, helping them get well-paying, entry-level jobs in the Banking and Finance sector.”

"SAGE Foundation provides underprivileged youth the education and resources to gain high-paying white-collar jobs in the BFSI Sector. We aim to build careers of 1 million low-income youth through this initiative." added Sage Foundation, vice president, corporate relations, Jugnu Dutta.
