Excellence in education through scholarships

To bring about a transformation in the lives of academically brilliant and economically underprivileged students through scholarships

An important element of AEEF is its scholarship program, needy and bright students are supported across India. The scholarship is awarded to students at any academic level after passing high school in any area and at all levels of education and selection of students is based on merit-cum-means. The actual amount of award is determined based on financial need of the student. An initial commitment is made for one year, but the recipients are given to understand that they will be supported to the highest degree level as long as they perform well, still in need of financial assistance and the funds are available at AEEF. Any substantial financial aid from other sources precludes the award of this fellowship.

Sponsorship for one student: US $ 300-400/year
