At the heart of Gujarat, where the dusty roads of rural areas intertwine with dreams as vast as the clear sky, there exists a beacon of hope – the Vikram Sarabhai Protsahan Yojana (VIKAS Scholarship). Born from the visionary spirit of our founding father, Dr. Vikram A. Sarabhai, this scholarship stands tall as a testament to our commitment: nurturing scientific curiosity in the minds of young souls, irrespective of their economic constraints.


Pioneering Scientific Temper in Every Corner

In the heartlands of Gujarat, education often meets economic hardships, especially for those aspiring to pursue higher studies. The VIKAS Scholarship emerges as a guiding light, offering ten coveted opportunities annually. These scholarships are not just financial aid; they are transformative instruments, aimed at empowering students from rural backgrounds.

Salient Features of VIKAS Scholarship

These scholarships provide substantial financial assistance, with selected students receiving up to ₹1,00,000 over four years.
