‘EMERGE’ Scholarship

‘EMERGE’ Scholarship

While evaluating hundreds of applications received for Angad Hundal Memorial Award in the last three years, we realized that there are many students who face challenging circumstances due to various reasons as broken families, mental health, illness, loss or abuse. Most of the students showed persistence and resilience in dealing with these challenges and overcame them with determination. It was noticed that though these applicants did not fit into the criteria for Angad Hundal memorial award, they definitely showed remarkable ability to work through struggles and deserve appreciation.
