Opportunity for poor students

The Regional Institute of Science & Technology (RIST), run by the ERD Foundation, Guwahati, has offered a unique facility to poor but meritorious students helping them to pursue their dreams of becoming engineers. The Meghalaya based institute has implemented a scheme to make higher education accessible to the meritorious students from poor families of northeast India. “Under the scheme nearly 100 below poverty level meritorious students are presently pursuing the BTech courses in different branches of RIST,” said M. Haque, the chairman of ERDF. He also added that the students should score above 70% mark in final 10+2 examination to avail the facility in RIST. The students may approach the RIST with their certificate/mark-sheets with two recommendation letters (one from the Principal of the school/college last attended and other from any religious body/ institution familiar with the student’s locality.
