Scholarship to Indigent Students as an Institutional Distinctiveness

 Chhatrapati Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj, the son of Hutatma Chouthe Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj of Kolhapur Dynasty was a source of inspiration to the institution. Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj was disheartened due the brutal murder of his beloved father Karveer Chhatrapati Chouthe Shivaji Maharaj at Ahmednagar in 1883 by British emperor. Chhatrapati Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj initiated a Maratha Boarding in memory of his father at Ahmednagar with the help of social leaders through donations when he visited a tomb in 1914. He promoted education through art, culture, music and supported writers and researchers with emphasis on Girl’s education. With the inspiration and motivation from Maratha Boarding, parent institute “Ahmednagar Jilha Maratha Vidya Prasarak Samaj” (AJMVPS) was established by visionary leaders in 1918. Ahmednagar Jilha Maratha Vidya Prasarak Samaj was inspired by his thoughts, beliefs and set the main objective of the institution “to impart education to economically backward, downtrodden and weaker sections of the society irrespective of the caste, creed, sex and religion”. The growth of institution during the past 100 years is noteworthy with its motto “Tejo Si Tejo me Dehi.” The parent institute has a review mechanism and it has long vision of future of its stakeholders and provides education in developing areas in line with the National Education Policy 2020 ensuring inclusion of all sections of society. AJMVPS is providing education to 750000 wards of economically weaker sections of society through 122 units including Higher educational, Secondary Schools, Primary and Pre-primary, residential schools (Ashramshala) as well as Boardings with the help of 4000 employees in all regions of Ahmednagar District including rural, hilly, tribal and urban area.

New Arts, Commerce and Science College, Parner is one of the active educational institute working in the rural and drought prone area of Ahmednagar district since 1977. It is established by AJMVPS and functioning by the principle of participatory management in order to reach to the families of economically weaker sections of society. The stakeholders are motivated by the history and thoughts of the AJMVPS and contributing for the continuation of education of wards of such families along with the academic responsibilities at HEI.

“If a poor boy cannot go to education, education must go to him”

This quote by Swami Vivekananda reminds us about our responsibility towards providing education to all. All of us are created equally but after the birth we are divided into caste, religion and status. Some get privileged while others left scrambling for even the basic needs of the survival. We have the sense of responsibility for the betterment of those less fortunate. In the fight against this poverty and inequality, education is our biggest asset. Education is crucial for overall growth and development of student, even more for financially underprivileged one. It opens the doors opportunities that make better life. Parner is drought prone area in Ahmednagar district with meagre rainfall. It has considerable population of economical and socially deprived community. The students with considerable talent need financial support for completing higher education. Therefore, in order to encourage and motivate such talent in the students, The HEI has instituted “Students Aid Fund” from the contributions of the staff initially and thereafter, made a separate budgetary provision to offers financial assistance to students from financially weaker section to pursue education and appreciate their achievements in academics, sports, cultural and extension activities. The objectives of the fund are:

  1. To render financial assistance to the indigent students.
  2. To meet any other need of the students considered to be genuine. Provided that the funds shall not be utilized for award of scholarships/fellowships or stipends or for payments of prizes, rewards etc. to students.

Every year after a short notification, the applications are invited from the students who are poor, financially weaker and who have lost their either parent or both. This application should be enclosed with valid documents like admission receipt, income certificate, ration card, Adhar card and death certificate of their either parents. These applications are scrutinized by a committee constituted by Hon. Principal and list of students availing the scholarship are then declared.

Since 2013-14, HEI has supported 563 students with the amount of Rs. 14, 41, 000/- as per the availability of funds and needs of the students. Following is the summary of efforts of HEI in this area:
