INDIANEXSERVICEMAN BLOG ANNOUNCES SCHOLARSHIP
TO THE WARDS OF POOR DEFENCE FAMILY PENSIONERS
“Education is a liberating force, and in our age it is also a democratizing force, cutting across the barriers of caste and class smoothing out inequalities imposed by birth and other circumstances”
Education is the life & hope for the poor. Therefore the poor must be helped for education if not for food. With this noble thought in mind, the ‘indianexserviceman’ blog team decided to donate a sum of Rs.1001/- (in the beginning) to the best performing ward of poor defence family pensioner belonging to other ranks (i.e. the Sepoys, Naiks & Havildars and equivalent ranks in Navy & Air Force) on the basis of highest total marks obtained in the +2 (Hr. Secondary exam.) in the year 2009 in Tamil Nadu.
This small and simple scholarship scheme is announced within 95 days of the creation of Blog “indianexserviceman.blogspot.com”. Initially the scheme is open to the defence family pensioners belonging to Tamil Nadu only. Later, with some addition of some sponsors to the scheme, it will be extended throughout the country.
In order to help the really needy people, the scope of this scheme has been narrowed down to the children of the widows of the other ranks. (Sepoy, Naik & Havildar)
The top scorer in the 2009 +2 examination (Hr. Secondary) will be awarded a one time scholarship of Rs.1001 by the ‘indianexserviceman’ blog team at a function which will be held within 3 months from the date of this publication at Tirunelveli.
The last date for the receipt of application is 30th June, 2009. Scanned mark sheet along with a copy of pass port size photo of the ward affixed on a plain application giving full details as per format given below may be sent by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org before 30th June 2009 at 5 pm.
The readers of this blog are requested to disseminate this information through the Ex-servicemen Canteens and ECHS Polyclinics throughout Tamil Nadu. Kindly help them wherever necessary. Those who wish to help the poor children are welcome to send e-mail for further details.
