Reliance Foundation has recently announced the recipients of the prestigious Reliance Foundation Undergraduate Scholarships for the academic year 2022-23. 5,000 first-year undergraduate students from 27 states and four Union Territories are selected to receive the scholarships.
The scholarships are awarded on a merit-cum-means basis. They will offer a grant of up to Rs. 2 lakhs and the opportunity to join an empowering alumni network. The Reliance Foundation announced the scholarships through a press release.
The scholarships are open to students from any stream of study, including Engineering/ Technology, Science, Medicine, Commerce, Arts, Business/Management, Computer Applications, Law, Education, Hospitality, Architecture, and other professional degrees.
How the Awardees are Selected?
The selection process was highly competitive, with nearly 40,000 applicants studying at over 4,984 educational institutions vying for the scholarships.
It involved a rigorous assessment that considered the candidates’ aptitude test scores, Class 12 marks, and other eligibility criteria. Also, the scholars include 99 students with disability and 51 % are females.
Jagannatha Kumar, CEO of Reliance Foundation, expressed his excitement about the diverse group of scholars selected this year. He stated, ” We congratulate every selected scholar and are confident that they will build a strong future for themselves while contributing to India’s progress.”
Last December, Reliance Foundation made a commitment to award 50,000 scholarships over the next decade. Since 1996, the foundation has already granted the Dhirubhai Ambani Scholarships to nearly 13,000 undergraduate students based on merit and financial need, including 2,720 scholars with disabilities.
The selected scholars will be directly notified about their selection and provided with further details. So, the announcement of the chosen Reliance Foundation Postgraduate Scholars for 2022-23 is expected in July. Additionally, the application process for the next round of Reliance Foundation Undergraduate Scholarships (2023-24) will be launched in the upcoming months.
