This initiative by the Rajasthani Sammelan Education Trust has been instituted for a student to further his/her education. Scholarships are awarded on various criteria usually reflecting the values and purposes of the Institution or the donor of the award.
The objective of the IRB Scholarship Endowment Fund is to encourage young students with potential. The students benefit from scholarships because their abilities and academic performance are recognised. The institutions and other students gain from the contribution made by students who are academically gifted or who have outstanding all round skills. From a parents perspective, it is seen as an opportunity to ensure that their child can be enrolled in an institution that will nurture his/her special attributes.
