Shoolini Academic Progression Scholarships (SAPS) scheme, initiated by Shoolini University for its students, has evoked a keen interest among the students and has led to a jump start in admissions for the next academic session. The University has already moved its new admissions procedure online through which prospective students can apply and register for admissions.
Despite the lockdown, more students have registered for admissions so far this year than during the corresponding period last year. The admission team, led by Shoolini University Vice-President Avnee Khosla, giving details of the SAPS scheme, said these scholarships were meant for the currently enrolled students who wish to pursue higher education in the University.
“We give scholarships to the existing students and offer them opportunities to enrol for higher studies within the University,” she said, and added that the same scheme was applicable to the current students of Shoolini Institute of Liberal Sciences and Business Management (SILB) located in Solan.
Avnee Khosla said in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, getting internships and jobs are going to be very difficult and students should invest this time in pursuing their Masters and Doctoral studies, thus preparing for better opportunities in future. She said the response so far is good. More than 50 students have already registered for the scholarship and half of them have already taken admission. The last date for MBA SAPS is May 15 and for all other Post Graduate programmes the last date is May 30.
