Team Everest - I am the Change Scholarship

‘I am the change scholarship' is an initiative of Team Everest NGO through which we provide scholarship for single parented/parentless students who are good at academics, but are financially challenged to pursue graduation.


    This scholarship is only for Parentless & Single Parented students who are from financially challenged families. We provide this scholarship currently in Chennai, Coimbatore & Madurai and have plans to expand to other places in future.
