Aakash+BYJU’S pays homage to defence forces; continues its tradition of Facilitating Education of Wards of Defence Personnel and Martyr’s: As part of its efforts to give back to the society, Aakash+BYJU’S, the national leader in test preparatory services, continued its tradition of facilitating education of wards of Defence Personnel in its endeavor to salute and thank the selfless service of the Armed Forces of the Nation.
Taking the 8-year-old tradition ahead, Aakash+BYJU’S announced the continuation of the 100% tuition fee waiver for children of Martyr’s for the next academic calendar starting March 2022. Apart from this, the 10% scholarships for wards of Defence Personnel and those affected by terrorism will also continue for the upcoming year.
Since 2014, the scholarship programme has benefitted more than 70,000 students. Major General IP Singh, VSM (Retd.), Indian Army, graced the ceremony as the Chief Guest in the presence of Mr Parmeshwar Jha, Regional Director, Aakash+BYJUS’S.
On the occasion, Major General IP Singh said “The brave men and women of the Armed forces should always be honored for their sacrifice. They risk their lives to protect the citizens’ freedom, it is a selfless act of valor that is done without asking for anything in return. Many of them have had to sacrifice their lives so the rest of the people can live in a free and prosperous society. I feel honored to be a part of this thoughtful initiative by Aakash+BYJU’S and give my best wishes! We are grateful for the financial support that Aakash+BYJU’S has been providing to wards of defence personnel.”
Commenting on the scholarship for Martyr’s wards, Mr. Parmeshwar Jha, Regional Director, Aakash+BYJU’S said, “It is our humble endeavour at Aakash+BYJU’S to thank the selfless service our armed forces provide to our nation. We are proud to have contributed in making a difference to the lives of around 70,000 children of Armed Forces heroes and are excited to extend the full scholarship for Martyr’s children and scholarships for Defence Personnel’s wards, this year as well. We have been taking this initiative since 2014 and every year it’s an overwhelming experience that in some way touches an emotional chord in our hearts.”
