Since its inception, K. C. Mahindra Education Trust has promoted education mainly by way of scholarships and grants to deserving and needy students. Some of these were instituted way back in the mid 1950s while others were founded more recently, a proof of its continuous efforts to bring about social and economic development through a literate, enlightened and empowered populace.
Mahindra All India Talent Scholarship
This scholarship has been set up to specifically empower students from the disadvantaged sections of our society. It is given to students belonging to lower income group families who wish to pursue a job oriented diploma course at a recognized Government Polytechnic.
To be eligible for this scholarship, the students should have passed 10th / 12th Standard or equivalent examinations and have secured admission in a government or any other recognized Polytechnic Institute for Diploma Courses in India. Majority of the awardees are girl students, as the Trust is keen in supporting girls and encouraging them to be qualified and subsequently reduce their vulnerability to exploitation and improve their standard of living.
In 2005, the Mahindra Group decided to double the number of scholarships given to 550 every year. From the academic year 2012-13, each individual through this scholarship gets awarded Rs. 10,000 per annum for a maximum period of three years.
The deadline for submission is 31st July 2015.
