As per a statement, Mukund Manohar and Chethan Mallya from the ISMA Leadership team and Sachin Toprani from the School Management Committee presented the scholarship award to the ISM Student Council and the principal.
‘ISMA’s goal is to create opportunities to give back to the school and support the school community and its students. The ISMA team believes that there is no greater pursuit than education. Education helps build a foundation on which we build our lives and it is with this vision that ISMA launched the Kindle Initiative and established this scholarship fund.’ Through its various events during the year, ISMA was able to raise funds for this scholarship fund, which received the support from alumni and well wishers of ISM. In 2018, the ISMA team also gave out tuition fee scholarships to 16 students of ISM who come from low income and deserving families.
The 50 recipients of the scholarships will be informed and the funds will be transferred directly into their student fee accounts. The names of the winning students will be kept confidential, with the ISM principal administering the award process. Manohar said, “We at ISMA hope that this scholarship will make an impact in the students’ educational pursuits. We ask from the awardees that in the future when they are in a position to do so, to pay it forward and carry on the tradition of supporting other students in their academic goals.”
