Swaraj Tractors, part of Mahindra Group, has awarded scholarships to 58 students including 15 girls under Mera Swaraj Education Support Program. The programme was launched last year for engineering students across the country and aims to create a future pool of engineers.
Over 1500 engineering students applied for this scholarship this year out of which 148 students were shortlisted post-screening and written test. A team comprised of senior members of Swaraj Tractors assessed the shortlisted students and finally awarded scholarships to 58 meritorious students.
During the assessment, all shortlisted students got the opportunity to converse with the seasoned professionals from Swaraj and gathered valuable inputs for their career development. This programme is designed to support meritorious engineering students from economically weak backgrounds to provide them with financial assistance along with holistic industry exposure.
Through the ‘Mera Swaraj Education Support Program’, students will receive financial support for four years, subject to consistent academic performance. Besides, they will also get practical exposure to modern tools and technologies through plant and field visits. As a part of their internships, they will also work on live farm mechanisation projects mentored by industry experts. All students under this programme will be subsumed into Swaraj’s final placement process.
Sharing their experience, the students who had received the scholarship last year expressed their gratitude and thanked Swaraj for conceptualising this programme. The students’ shared that apart from financial assistance the programme provided them with an opportunity to gain practical experience.
