Mohan T Advani Centennial Scholarships
• On the occasion of the Birth Centennial of Mohan T Advani in 2012, his family made contributions which formed the seed money for Mohan T Advani Centennial Scholarships by Blue Star Foundation. Instituted formally in 2013, the scholarship started out with 9 students, which has now grown to rendering financial assistance to 30 undergraduate Mechanical/Production/Electronics engineering and architectural students studying in Government recognised colleges. The scholarship beneficiaries are selected objectively on the criteria of merit and socio-economic background. Besides sponsoring tuition fees and hostel fees, the initiative provides holistic support for these students, inclusive of mentorships by senior Blue Star officials and internships to prepare them for future work life. The scholarship helps the children to dedicate their energy to their first responsibility of achieving their academic goals, relieving them and their families from the burden of taking loans and the stress of managing finances required to procure a professional degree and better their future.
