What is Reach for the Stars (RFTS)?

Reach for the Stars is a scholarship program which supports meritorious underprivileged girls in pursuing professional courses (engineering, medical, law among other things) all over India. It is a joint collaboration between Edu-GIRLS and Prayatna. The aim is to help these female scholars with tuition fees, boarding and mentoring support.

Why Reach for the Stars?

Recent data suggest that while more females are being enrolled in MPhil, postgraduate and certificate levels and in BA and BSc programmes, however, it is in the professional and technical courses where female enrolment is still significantly lower especially related to STEM Education.
Centuries of discrimination have kept women from entering education, and even in the modern world, we are reeling under the effects of it. Traditionally, women are also discouraged from pursuing technical education.
