Karnataka Student Interviews

We conducted the student interviews for the academic session of 2012-13 in Karnataka from 22nd May to 1st June. A total of 678 students were interviewed across 6 villages of Northern Karnataka. Among these students were orphans, children of devdasis, children of single parents and children who worked part-time to support themselves and their families. All of these students dream of a brighter future which we hope we can provide them with!

Among the applicants, we had quite a few students who we had supported for their 11th and 12th grades and who have now come back to us seeking support for college education. It gives us immense pleasure to see that they want to continue their studies and excel in their life in spite of of their hardships.

We were assisted in our interviews by few of our past beneficiaries who were a wonderful help to us, explaining the interview process to the scholarship applicants and verification of application forms. We’re very proud of them for taking out their time to give back to us.

The Mumbai interviews will be conducted in August.

Here are a few snapshots of the interviews:
