Scholarships & Loan Schemes

New higher education avenues have been pursued by the visually challenged over the last decade. Along with new opportunities come new costs of higher education courses. Similarly, whilst assistive technologies and computers have provided immense aid to the visually challenged, what is often considered a luxury for sighted students is a necessity for a student with visual impairment.

In order to prevent financial challenges from stopping the achievement of goals, the XRCVC, in partnership with Tech Mahindra Foundation, runs an annual higher education scholarship programme. Watch this space for our annual announcement of applications in the month of July/August.

In addition, the XRCVC also provides assistive technology support to visually challenged students of St. Xavier’s College for their study purposes whilst they are in college.
