The Trust awards merit scholarships to students pursuing undergraduate and post-graduate studies in India. The programme begins in September each year, and the criteria for processing the applications are stated. The objective of the programme is to encourage outstandingly meritorious / deserving students to pursue academic excellence.
Travel grants are provided to students proceeding for post-graduate and doctoral studies, and for professionals proceeding for their mid-career programmes, or to attend relevant and meaningful seminars and conferences abroad.
