FIITJEE Students Ace KVPY Exams (2016-17) Yet Again; Setting New Benchmarks of Success
• 916 FIITJEEian’s across the country have qualified in KVPY Stage 1 at a National level
• 211 students from FIITJEE Delhi NCR Centers have qualified in KVPY Stage 1
New Delhi, January 5, 2017: Displaying the supremacy of FIITJEE’s coaching in Science and Engineering streams, students trained by us have yet again done remarkably well at the national Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY 2016 – 2017). At a National level 916 students from FIITJEE have qualified the tough and prestigious scholarship exam, out of which 211 students are from FIITJEE Delhi NCR centers.
Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY), a scholarship program, started in 1999, is an on-going National Program of Fellowship in Basic Sciences, initiated and funded by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, to identify students with talent and aptitude for science research; help them realize their academic potential and encourage them to take up research careers in Science.
“We are thrilled by the results of our students who have scored well in yet another national level competition. At FIITJEE, we do not just specialize in training students for IITs and other competitive exams, but also make a comprehensive effort in developing interest and aptitude in our students for studying Science. Our teaching mechanism and pedagogy help students develop a sound conceptual knowledge and equip them with scientific temperament and right studying and success techniques,” says Mr. R L Trikha, Director, FIITJEE.
He further added, “In India, unlike in the West and Europe, students pursuing research in Science are still very low in number. One reason for the same is absence of sufficient encouragement for students to pursue their passion that involves a long and arduous journey if not guided properly. While KVPY is an important program that identifies such students and encourages them, many young students in India lack awareness about the same. We also need to educate more students about this program”.
It’s a glorious moment for FIITJEE as its students are poised to earn abundant accolades through the KVPY scholarship. Since its inception in 1992, the institute has added many glories to its name. A visionary attitude, enhanced standards of brilliance and hard work are hallmarks which sets it apart from its competitors.
