Unfortunately today, a large segment of the world’s population still does not know how to read or write. As a result, they are unable to achieve their goals in life because of lack of opportunities and earning potential to support their families. Each one of us can help spread knowledge and provide the means and opportunity for the poor to receive an education. Poverty leaves India with huge literacy problem still to solve. Poverty and illiteracy are closely linked - and with the second largest population in the world, India is home to one-third of all world poverty. While 22% of Indians fall below the poverty line, it has been estimated that more than half of the nation’s population lacks even basic literacy skills.With a population of more than 1.3 billion, it’s no surprise that India runs the largest national school system in the world. UESCO Scholarship is the Non Government Organisation which works for the empowerment of students and help them to make a better future! UESCO Scholarships is a simple portal through which various services starting from student application, application receipt, processing, sanction and disbursal of the scholarships to Students are enabled.
Scholarships are financial aid awards designed to help students pay for an undergraduate degree. Sometimes a scholarship is a one-time check. Other school scholarships are renewable and provide money for students each semester or school year. These awards differ from student loans in that they don't have to be repaid. Scholarships come from a variety of different sources, including donations & charities. We offer financial assistance on the basis of merit as well as the need. If you are financially not able to carry on your studies, we are there to help you.
Education gives us an understanding of the world around us and offers us an opportunity to use that knowledge wisely. Spending on Education is an investment. The student becomes a role model in the community inspiring others to pursue the path of Knowledge and Education! This initiative aims at providing a Simplified, Mission-oriented, Accountable, Responsive & Transparent 'SMART' System for faster & effective disposal of Scholarships applications and delivery of funds directly into beneficiaries account without any leakages. We know how much time and effort goes into your studies, and we also know that a high-quality education is a significant and important investment in your future. We believe the cost of education should not preclude highly motivated dreamers with the commitment and desire to succeed. We are the supporter for the students. Based on this belief and the need, we have created a scholarship that provide the students all over India for quality, afford educations that lead to career-ready degrees. The goal is to enable the low-income, students to fulfill their dreams.
Education is one of the most powerful things in life. It allows us to find the meaning behind everything and helps improve lives in a massive way. Our mission is to help you succeed. We connect you with people and opportunities to help you achieve your goals. Literacy in India is a key for socio-economic progress, and the Indian literacy rate is 74.04% (2011 census).Despite government programmes, India's literacy rate increased only "sluggishly". The 2011 census, indicated a 2001–2011 decadal literacy growth of 9.2%, which is slower than the growth seen during the previous decade. An old analytical 1990 study estimated that it would take until 2060 for India to achieve universal literacy at then-current rate of progress. In 1944, the Government of British India presented a plan, called the Sergeant Scheme for the educational reconstruction of India, with a goal of producing 100% literacy in the country within 40 years, i.e. by 1984. Although the 40-year time-frame was decided at the time by leaders of the Indian independence movement as being too long a period to achieve universal literacy, India had only just crossed the 74% level by the 2011 census. The British India censuses identify a significant difference in literacy rates, by: sex, religion, caste and state of residence, e.g.: Strategy. The UESCO Children's Scholarship Fund will carry out its mission by:
• Awarding scholarships to students based on income levels at or below standards for the Federal Free
• Publicizing the scholarships throughout the State of UESCO
• Serve as a resource to parents
• Raise and distribute funds for scholarships.
In the census 2011, a person aged seven and above, who can both read and write with understanding in any language is treated as literate. A person, who can only read but can’t write, is not literate. India's literacy rate is at 74.04%.Kerala is the most literate state in India, with 93.91% literacy. Bihar is the least literate state in India, with a literacy of 63.82%.

We provide assistance to poor students from primary school to university levels, who are not in a position to continue their education because of financial hardships. All the students persuing education from class 2nd to college and university students who are talented and meritorious or have less means to continue their education will get the opportunity. Scholarships help students have more time to focus on their studies. For many students the stresses of working make it difficult for them to graduate on time, or graduate with the high grades they have the potential to achieve. Scholarships aren’t awarded just to students with a 4.0 GPA. Each scholarship has its own criteria. Some scholarships are awarded based on need. homas Jefferson wrote 100 years ago, ”..that the children of the poor must be thus educated at common expense.” Today, grants and scholarships open doors for students from low-income families, by providing financial aid for those who need it most. Many bright, hardworking and deserving students in India do not complete their education because of their poor economic background. Many of them are children of poor farmers and daily wage laborers who go to great lengths to provide their children basic education. The students themselves study in conditions which would not be acceptable in any developed country. They lack basic infrastructure like a table and chair sufficient books etc. In spite of these odds, they manage to qualify in the entrance exams for professional streams, but they back out due to lack of financial support. Our goal is to provide scholarships to meritorious students from economically deprived communities irrespective of caste, color, creed, gender, etc
