"Through our work, we have proven scholarship as an effective tool to increase the gross enrollment ratio in higher education. Though state governments have good coverage with scholarships at the post-matric level, coverage in higher education is very poor. We expect the government to allocate more funds to scholarships in the higher education sector as well as encourage corporate CSR to allocate more funds for education and skilling initiatives."
