Almost 48% of India’s children are not enrolled in higher secondary school / college because of poverty, accessibility, and availability issues. Our Education Scholarships Program ‘Udaan’ aims to give wings to such students so that they can fly high.
UDAAN is a holistic scholarship program that supports the higher secondary and college education of meritorious students from economically challenged families. The scholarship program was launched on September 12, 2015. It identifies the potential beneficiaries, shortlists the most deserving candidates from these through a well-rounded selection process, gives away scholarships, monitors & evaluates the progress of beneficiaries, and also facilitates capacity building among these students. We provide financial support for 6 years to the selected students (until they complete a degree course of their choice). The financial support covers school fees, tuition fees, books, stationery per student per annum. Udaan offerings extend towards coaching and mentoring the students to help them choose a career path as well.
Monitoring & Mentoring
Yuva Unstoppable facilitates regular mentoring and training sessions for the beneficiaries often conducted by the benefactors and various eminent personalities & experts from different industries. This enables overall growth and development of the students. Regular career counselling is also provided to the students to aid effective and rewarding career choices.
Regular meetings are organised for guiding the students and helping them overcome their challenges. The aim of these interactive sessions is to build a dialogue around career and life in general, with the students and their parents and boost their morale. It offers a safe space for all the students to freely discuss their problems and encourages prompt resolution of the same. Quarterly Analysis and Mentoring sessions are conducted to further enable all-rounded development of these students.
In these sessions experts from various fields like engineering, medicine, accounts, etc. are invited to share their subject knowledge and experience with the beneficiaries. The objective is to support the children to get more clarity about their areas of interest and set realistic aspirations. Therefore, it serves as a catalyst for effective decision making and career choices among students. The students get first-hand experience into the challenges of professional life as well as the secret of excelling in their endeavours.
