Dr Ishari K Ganesh, Founder and Chancellor of VISTAS (one of Tamil Nadu’s leading multi-disciplinary institution for higher education) and an eminent educationist and philanthropist in the city has announced ‘free education scheme’ for children of Corona Warriors, who have been tirelessly working at the frontlines to combat the spread of Coronavirus.
The scheme will provide an opportunity for students to pursue higher education in any of the fifty undergraduate courses offered at Vels University. Recognising the sacrificial efforts of the frontline field workers, Vels Free Education Scheme aims to transform their lives by ensuring quality higher education for their children.
Under this scheme, a total of 300 students (100 children of parents working in each of the three fields as healthcare nurses, police personnel and corporation sanitation workers) who have cleared their class 12 examinations in this academic year will be selected on the basis of their marks and Vels University will sponsor their entire education. Priority will be given to the children of those who had lost their lives in the battle against the virus. This shall be a trendsetting plan for Tamil Nadu.
Speaking about the free education scheme in a video released on his official handle, Dr Ishari K. Ganesh, Chancellor of Vels University has requested the Chancellors of other private Universities and heads of educational institutions to offer such similar schemes as a token of respect and gratitude for the faceless warriors who are waging a war against the COVID – 19 virus.
