About Talent scholarship program
As a noble cause and with the generosity of the valued Donors, Nishkam strives to search and find those students, who do well in their studies, require financial support due to their poor economic condition. The criteria for selection of students has been framed covering the scope so that such objective is achieved. The designated schools across Delhi are approached for seeking their assistance in searching for such students who are meritorious and require financial aid to continue their studies after schooling. Often, it happens that the scholarship amount may not be sufficient to meet the cost of the professional courses for students to pursue further. Thus, this talent scholarship program is meant to assist such students to meet out the entire cost of their education.
