Scholarship Disbursement 2020
The Scholarship Disbursement For Meritorious Students under the aegis of Dhrithi Foundation, Mangaluru, Vidyaposhak, Dharwad, PP Gomathi Memorial Trust, Mangalore and Megha Fruit Processing Pvt Ltd was conducted by direct transfers to beneficiary accounts during the last week of March 2021, owing to COVID19 related restrictions.
PP Gomathi Memorial Trust, Mangalore, established in memory of PP Gomathi, Professor of English and retired Principal of Besant’s College, Mangalore, had joined the efforts of Dhrithi Foundation last year. Megha Fruit Processing Pvt Ltd., Puttur, makers of Bindu Mineral Water and other products, magnanimously came forward to extend support to needy students under their CSR initiative this year. Many other donors, who have been regularly extending support since the beginning, also continued their support, and a few others joined this year, despite the hardships caused by COVID19. It is indeed very heartening and encouraging, to say the least.
This year, 2020-21, a sum of Rs. 4,22,000 was distributed to 210 beneficiary students from Dakshina Kannada district, 36 students being newly supported. Of this, PP Gomathi Memorial Trust and Megha Fruit Processing Pvt Ltd., each provided support of Rs. 100000.
This was the 15th year of Dhrithi Foundation’s Nurture Merit Programme and during this period, a total of Rs. 89,73,394 has been provided to 1267 students, continuously until the completion of their education.
