What is this?
- This is a scholarship started by the initiative of few of Chanakya’s Karyakarta Adhikaris (i.e successful students who have now joined the civil services and are serving the nation).
- It was started in the year 2015.
Scholarship Amount - Rs. 50,000/-
- This scholarship is meant to support those talented and deserving students during their preparation time.
- We often find that many talented students cannot pursue Civil Services Exams preparation full time for one reason or another. For eg – A student from a poor background may not be able to give up his/her job since he/she does not have another source of income.
- For such and many other reasons Chanakya’s Karyakarta Adhikaris took it upon themselves to identify such students and award them this scholarship took take the burden from their shoulders so that they can focus on their preparations.
First awardee - Madhuri Baviskar (later cleared MPSC exam 2015. Post - Dy.S.P)
