In an attempt to empower women through the tool of education, Mahila Dakshata Samiti provides scholarships to girl students in dire need of financial assistance to continue their education.
Newspaper advertisements invite applications from college students for scholarships, the only criteria being the girls need to have a proven academic record. The applications are then scrutinized by MDS field workers who visit the homes of all the applicants. The scholarships are awarded to the selected candidates at the start of the academic year.
The organization awards scholarship up to INR 10,000 per student for one academic year. MDS continues to support the candidate until she concludes her studies.
