The SCINDIA SCHOOL OLD BOYS' ASSOCATION (SOBA) was registered under the United States of Gwalior, Indore & Malwa ( Madhya Bharat) Societies Registration Act of 1950, on 25th November 1959. The Mantle of running the organization was carried by many illustrious Scindians over the years under the leadership of the Principal of The Scindia School. HH Madhavrao Scindia with his futuristic vision launched SOBA of the new millennium through our website on 21st Oct '2000. The next phase of evolution of SOBA was the restructuring of this organization. The Principal and the members firmly believed that the Old Boys Association was best run by the Old Boys themselves. The year 2003 thus, was a turning point in the history of Scindia School Old Boy's Association.
The draft constitution of SOBA proposed a Central Committee was to be formed with adequate representation from regional chapters, in addition to representatives from other quarters along with a member of the silver jubilee batch and other special nominees. The Principal of the School, according to this charter would be a Permanent Member of the Executive Committee. The organization has gone from strength to strength. The result was a proliferation of SOBAs with many chapters in India and abroad. SOBA has always been updated of the school, its affairs, its achievements and its celebrations. And it is this organization that makes the old boy family a closely knit group.
sobafinnal Dear Alumnus, 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.
