The trust said in a press release that there is a 40 percent increase in the number of applications this year. While in 2020-21, they received 3200 applications, this year, they have received 4505 online applications. “The increase can be attributed to the fact that many students who had dropped out of their higher education in 2020, came back this year,” the trust said.
The trust also shared that as per the application numbers, they found that commerce is the most popular course among Muslim girls – 58.5 percent of graduate applications are enrolled for BCom.
Husna Sheriff, President, Bazm-e-Niswan said that the organization of women was registered in 1971 to meet the challenges faced by the underprivileged and the destitute. “We are a group of women with vision and foresight. Since 1971, we have given scholarships to 63,000+ girls to complete their higher education and are now successfully qualified in different professions,” she said.
Sheriff added that due to the pandemic, lakhs of students dropped out of higher education and the Trust realised the need to support needy girls from discontinuing their education. “To make it easy, fast and safe for students & parents, we launched Bazm-e-Niswan Online Software Application,” she said. The application was open for 60 days (October & November 2021) for students to apply across Bangalore and then submit the hard copy to the office of Bazm-e-Niswan Charitable Trust.
Candidates were required to fill out an online application and submitted documents were verified with the hard copy of the application and documents received. The fresh students who had secured more than 50 percent in their previous exam were selected.
Others present at the scholarship disbursement program were Ameen E Muddasar, Career Counsellor, Cigma, Rehmath, Joint Secretary and Parveen, trustee of the trust.
