The Alumni of SSN as in the previous years have once again extended support towards this effort by contributing nearly Rs. 10,00,000 for 23 students under the merit-cum-means category. The students who have earlier benefited from SSN’s Rural Scholarship Scheme donated a sum of Rs.60,000 under the ‘Rural Scholars – Giving Back’ scheme.

Rural Scholarship is a unique scheme for providing admission and totally free education at SSN to rural scholars and it started in 2008 with the first batch graduating in 2012. Rural Scholarship is extended by SSN to meritorious students from rural government schools in Tamil Nadu, typically with Tamil as the medium of instruction. 25 students are admitted every year under this scheme and all their expenses are managed by SSN. SSN organizes special life skills training sessions for students under the rural scholar’s scheme to enable them to compete successfully with their counterparts from urban areas.

Mrs. Kala Vijayakumar, President, SSN Institutions, said, “It is very gratifying to note that the culture of giving back to the society is successfully inculcated in our students. This is a prime example of spirals of inspiration that education can create. This comprehensive ideal of growth and transformation is a dire necessity for our country to grow competitively in the global arena.”
