Access to higher education is influenced by many factors such as socio-economic conditions of the family, education level of parents. Thus, this project attempts to facilitate higher education for the underprivileged students, especially orphan, semi-orphan, first generation graduate in the family in access to higher education. Since 2013, the UHET has been consistently organizing awareness programmes in higher secondary schools by a team of trained professionals. This is carried out predominantly in government/ government aided schools located in rural/tribal regions where most of the students are from the ‘below poverty line’ segment and whose parents are illiterate. Besides, students are educated on the sources of various financial assistance schemes from the govt. departments, NGOs like ours and from other foundations. They are encouraged to apply for scholarships to pursue higher education. These programmes motivate many students to enroll for higher education and they are informed of the various choices of courses, based on individual interests and learning capacity.
