SOBA has amongst its aims & objectives, the establishment of scholarships for deserving students. This scholarship was started in the year 2013 when we had two outstanding students of 2012 & 2013 batches, who had desired to pursue their studies further but faced financial difficulties. The Principal had identified these two deserving students and approached SOBA for support.
1. Mohit Mandeliya, Class of 2012: Admitted to study BSc. Biotechnology from ITM College, Gwalior. He was a government scholar and a School Prefect at Shivaji House.
2. Ayushi Awasthi, Class of 2013: With an outstanding result in Class XII Board examination, he made a significant contribution to the field of social work and audio-visual presentations at the school. A meritorious student and a scholarship recipient at The Scindia School, he was then admitted to the Gargi College at Delhi University.
In 2015, the Principal proposed the name of Vivek Singh Shahariya (2015, Mahadji) as a recipient of this scholarship, and SOBA accepted to fund Rs. 1.50 lacs p.a. to him for the next 3 years. Vivek, hailing from a small village called Dabra near Gwalior, was a government scholar, having studied in Scindia from 2008 to 2015. He was an outstanding athlete & cricketer, having represented the School in IPSC & SGFI. He was awarded the Sports Blazer for 2013-14. He scored 76% in Class XII CBSE & was admitted to B.A.(Hons.) in Political Science with Shivaji College of Delhi University.
We welcome contributions from all Scindians to this noble cause. We shall accept contributions of Rs. 1000/- and above. Any Scindian who wishes to contribute may deposit the amount in SOBA’s bank account through NEFT/Cheque.
