SGS SABHA activities - free scholarships

Loan Scholarships: - The loan scholarship scheme continued till 1973. It was then noticed that keeping track of the current address of the past scholarship and pursuing the recoveries was time consuming. Hence in 1973, the Sabha decided to give free scholarships with no liability for repaying. We are happy that quite a few past scholars have, out of gratitude, donated funds by way of free scholarship endowments to enable the Sabha to assist some more deserving students.

Free Scholarships
- These scholarships are given on merit-cum-means basis and students from anywhere in the country are eligible to apply for these if they meet the merit-cum-means criteria. A sub-committee of the Managing Committee scrutinizes all the applications received. The quantum of scholarships to be given to the various courses of study as also the number of scholarships to be given in a year are decided by the Managing Committee.
