About Anant Education Initiative

Anant Education Initiative (www.ananteducation.org) works toward providing scholarship to economically challenged meritorious students, eliminating obstacles born out of poverty and thus empowering individuals through education and creating new footprints of knowledge within our society.
Despite the existence of several schemes to encourage economically disadvantaged students to pursue higher education, increasing number of meritorious students discontinue their studies due to financial constraints. Thus, in order to bridge the ever-widening gap between merit, aspiration and funds for quality higher education, Anant Education Initiative, was conceptualised and initiated in March 2011.

Since 2011, Anant has been able to reach out to more than 5000 meritorious students of various educational institutions from across West Bengal and other parts of India like Bihar, Odisha, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Tripura.

 Anant Education Initiative also envisions creating industry-ready candidates through training in soft skills, workshops for the all-round personality development, classes in interview-preparedness and by organizing job fairs.
Anant has tied up with several universities like Jadavpur University and Presidency University to provide scholarship to meritorious students from these universities.
Scholar Selection Procedure
Anant asks those interested in being a part of our scholarship program to first formally apply. Once the applications have been received, Anant selects deserving candidates through the process of interviewing and an examination of supporting educational documents.

The scholars who are selected through this process complete banking formalities and are opened an individual bank account by Anant. Our organisation then distributes the scholarship money among the selected candidates through their respective, individual, bank accounts.

Activities that Anant Education engages in:
Anant Education Initiative was launched to promote education, culture and all around development of underprivileged students. Anant’s goal is not only to offer monetary aid through scholarship program, but also to offer vocational training, motivational workshops, soft skills training etc. for all round development of scholars and make them ready for job market. 

Anant provides the following benefits to its scholars:

  1. Monetary aid through scholarship to deserving students from financially under privileged families, so that they can realise their dreams of higher education.
  2. Skill enhancing classes and seminars, job fairs, industrial visits, personality development workshops etc. to make our scholars more job market ready.
  3. Different types of competitions, health camps, motivational workshops, individual counselling sessions etc. for the all-round development of the students.
  4. Scholar academic performance is monitored on a yearly basis to measure the effective utilization of scholarship amount. Anant also strives to stay connected with the scholars through various social media, emails, telephonic communication etc. It strives to build a strong community where scholars can help and support each other.

How you can help
Anant Education Initiaitive supports each individual scholar with Rs.500 per month, or Rs.6000 per year. Scholarships have not yet been given out for the coming academic year, and for this reason the organisation is trying to accumulate funds so as to provide scholarship to the maximum possible amount of students. By supporting this cause one would be directly contributing towards the higher education of an underprivileged 12th standard graduate.
