Vidyadhan scholarship program is impacting life's of meritorious students by sponsoring their education right from 11 th grade to degree education.I am privileged to be the beneficiary of this program after giving their tests and interviews.Their mentoring support has also been beneficial for me to shape my career and land a job in a reputed MNC.Without Vidyadhan's support it would be difficult for me to complete my Computer Engineering and I am very thankful to them for helping me complete my education.My brother is also awarded with this scholarship which is shaping his career more brighter.
