Redington Foundation Sponsors Scholarships for Rural Students at SSN

Redington Foundation Sponsors Scholarships for Rural Students at SSN

Redington Foundation has joined hands with SSN Institutions in its efforts to bridge the rural – urban divide through transformational education. Since 2007 SSN has been supporting meritorious students from rural areas without means to pursue higher education by providing free engineering education to 25 school toppers from rural government schools. Redington Foundation is partnering SSN in this initiative by providing full scholarships to 4 rural students at SSN. The scholarships covers the complete cost of engineering education for these four students for the year 2015-16. The four students are designated as Redington scholars at SSN. Apart from the scholarships to these 4 students Redington Foundation has also sponsored laptops for 25 rural students at SSN. Also to improve the communication skills of the students from rural areas and bring them on par with students from urban areas in terms of employability a Smart Learning Center has been established on SSN Campus by Redington Foundation. This center will provide training on communication skills, etiquette and other employability skills to rural students through world renowned trainers free of cost. This facility will benefit not just students of SSN but also of nearby colleges.
