Gap between scholarships and students needs to be bridged, says Buddy4Study CEO

Buddy4Study Co-Founder and CEO and Director Manasvi Singh highlighted some major issue concerning scholarships and students and said the gap between the two needs to be bridged so that students can get the maximum benefit out of it.

“There is a gap between scholarships and students as many of them are not aware of how many and what kinds of scholarships are available and how to apply for that. And whoever are aware of it also don’t know how to get proper application support system on how to go ahead about it,” he said while addressing a scholarships distribution ceremony by Tata Steel in Odisha.

“Buddy4Study is the organization that I represent plays a major role in bridging the gap between the student and scholarship,” he said, adding “Once students register themselves on our portal, we ask them questions, try to know their potential and accordingly we connect them to all scholarships.”

Highlighting some of the major scholarships available in the country, he said, “There are scholarships worth 19,000 crs available in India every year. Of all that, scholarships worth INR 11,000 crs are available from government and scholarships worth INR 8,000 to 9,000 are available from private players such as Tata Steel, Tata Trust, Hindustan Liver and other corporates.”

Dispelling the myth that scholarships are only meant for meritorious students, he said that it is for all who are in need of it as many need-based scholarships are also there.

“Scholarships are not only for meritorious students; it is also there for need-based students,” he said, adding, “Union ministries such as Ministry of Minority Affairs, Department of Social Justice, Department of Science and technology and Department of Tribal Affairs offer many scholarships for needy students.”

“Our objective is to connect these scholarships to deserving students so that they can get the maximum benefit out of it,” he added.

He invigorated the students to contribute richly for the formation of a prosperous country and said they are the future that the country is looking forward to.

“Students of today are the future of tomorrow and when they grow, their contribution to the formation of the country will be highly remarkable,” he said, adding, India is one of the fastest developing country where we reap huge dividend because of our students and their education.”

He also encouraged the student by quoting the famous Nelson Mandela statement, saying “Education is the biggest weapon through education we can fight poverty.”
