National Scholarship Program

 

The National Scholarship Program provides merit based scholarship to youth from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds, to get employment-oriented vocational trainings which help them to earn their own living on a sustainable basis by increasing their employability in the labor market. The National Scholarship Program is funded by MISEREOR. The emphasis was laid on identifying needy young people, preferably girls and families of women headed households and widows. The program, which began in October 2009, has so far provided 754 scholarships to the youth across India. A variety of courses such as short-term driving courses (3 months), mid-term courses like computer trainings and balwadi trainings (6 months) and long-term courses such as technical trades (1-3 years) were supported.
