“This scholarship gives valuable support to manage my expenses which are related to my academics. And also now I don’t need to ask for money from home for my extra educational expenses such as buying textbooks, tutorials. So this scholarship helps to achieve my educational targets. Thank you very much…”

“The SLGS scholarship really helped me to cover up all the expenses for my studies in the university. It was a great help to my parents too because they don’t want to worry about my expenses during my stay at the university. I was able to manage and spend the money very wisely and to run smoothly the month. Further, the SLGS Scholarship was really mental support for me and therefore I was able to fully engage myself in studies..”
