Earn and Learn

The main objective of the scheme is to develop a student as a multi-skilled personality with academic excellence and a commitment to an equal society.

This scheme is undertaken for the benefit of students coming from the rural areas, who are economically backward, intelligent and meritorious but cannot afford higher education. The scheme benefits the needy and financially hard-pressed students. It teaches the student the idea that no work is big or small and develops a work culture with the right aptitude.

The scheme is flexible to give work to those who demand it. This is a vision of keeping our youth gainfully employed as well as to contribute to civil society.

This will make higher education accessible and available to the poor, meritorious and the needy.
