eegan Scholar – India is an Eegan project that aims to educate the promising poor children in India helping them to transmute their dreams into reality. This project is designed to provide financial support to these children who can not afford education due to poverty.The project aims at providing educational scholarships to promising students in India that come from low income families. These scholarships will assist them through higher education to help them get their degree or diploma in a field of their choice.
This project will support intelligent children from families with a monthly income of INR 5,000 ($125) or less. Most of the parents in such families work as low salaried employees in cottage industries and in small businesses. With such low income, these parents strive hard to make ends meet providing food, shelter and clothes to their children. Education is costly and consistently takes low priority becoming a distant dream for these children who love to pursue their dreams through education. Some families can’t stand seeing their children suffer and borrow money for very high interest rates that pushes them into further hardship.
The factual analysis for the year 2008 reveals that it costs between $300 and $1,500 yearly for a student. The amount varies depending on various factors like the degree/diploma pursued, educational institution attended and whether a stay away from the family (hostel) is required or not.
Eegan continuously works with the principals of higher secondary schools (Grades 11 and 12) to identify candidates for this scholarship program. It presents the principals the details of the program, flyers to be posted in the school notice boards and applications to be distributed to their promising students who come from poor families.
