Santoor Scholarship was launched in 2016, and it offers financial support to 900 girls every year, this scheme is only for the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Karnataka. In India, there are millions of children who have only dreamt of going to the right school that can nurture their talent and provides a platform for them to showcase their talent.

Sensing these limitations in the education sector Wipro Consumer Care and Wipro Cares initiated a program called the Santoor Scholarship program intended to financially reinforce girls from underprivileged backgrounds who have the ambition to gain higher education after 12th grade.

Santoor Scholarship For Girls

Scholarships have enabled many children to gain education and achieve the goals that they have targeted. These scholarships have a far-reaching impact as they reduce the financial burden for studying in good schools and thus allows students to give more time and energy for focusing on their studies rather than letting their financial condition forcing them out of the schools.

Debates about underprivileged children getting educated have been one of the hottest debates. Government schemes on paper look great, but their implementation has been lackluster, and they have not been able to achieve a decrease in the dropout rates, especially for the girl child.
