The Navtej Kohli Scholarship program owes its origin to the remarkable vision of Sh. P. Kohli, a freedom fighter and visionary who passed away on October17, 1975, leaving behind his fifteen year old son, Navtej Kohli, to live his dream of improving our society by funding the cost of higher studies for the deprived yet deserving strata of the students in India. To realize the dream that his father envisioned, Mr. Kohli began “Navtej Kohli Scholarship” program in 2011 to assist the deserving and bright students in pursuing their masters degree education. Navtej Kohli scholarship is offering financial assistance of Rs. 1 Lakh to one outstanding student, beginning 2012. This program is open to those wishing to pursue their higher education in engineering. For the first year, Delhi will have one scholarship every year. By 2015, we are planning to increase the number of scholarships to 5 students per year, and will gradually expand the program to other states of India
