Lucknow (30 June 2012): Scholarship Facilitation Center — a free service dedicated to all the needy and deserving students who wish to apply for Government Scholarships, has been started in Lucknow.
This year - just for State of U.P., over Rs.100 crores is earmarked for scholarships to all the deserving students who apply. But lots of parent and students worry and say that even though they applied for scholarships, they did not receive any funds or some just blame the system that the Babus in the Minority Department demanded "suvidha shulk" or bribe amount to process the scholarship.
Center Location: Scholarship Facilitation Center, Opp: Police Chowki, Purania Chauraha, Aliganj, Lucknow - 226024; Helpline Number: 9151403727; Working Hours : Mon - Saturday (10 AM - 6 PM)
Community members in other cities should replicate this concept of Scholarship Facilitation Center and spread the awareness about scholarships and how to apply so that funds reach deserving students.
