Nivethan since 2012 supported more than 150 ambitious and promising students from Madurai, Dindigul, Hospet (Karnataka) and Dhamnagar (Orissa) in India for their higher education post 10th Standard. All of them have scored remarkable results in their public exams and showed commitment and effort to achieve best outcomes of their education as possible. Now only through the provided scholarship they are able to continue their studies as all of them come from economically challenged families. But Nurture Merit is more than just financial support. The children are guided through their higher studies and counseled until they reach the final goal of graduation and employment. Furthermore they receive special skill training to prepare them best for the job market and other challenges they have to face after their studies. Nivethan chooses the students according to the criteria of coming from economically very weak backgrounds and showing ambition and a great interest in achieving academic excellence. For the year 2020-2021, we plan to support 50+ needy children from across 3 locations in India.
