Mother Easwaramma Scholarship awarded to the Girl Students at Dharmakshetra - 21st June 2015
One of the significant
programmes of the Mother Easwaramma Foundation is the Mother
Easwaramma Scholarship for the Girl Students. The girl child
in India is often the most neglected member of the family. In
many families, which are below the poverty line, the girl
child is required to drop out of school and become an earning
member well before she attains the age of majority. To
encourage deserving girl children to pursue their academic
ambitions and goals, the Mother Easwaramma Scholarship was
instituted in the year 2000.
