During the year 2017-18, the League has disbursed free scholarship of Rs 108.37 lacs among 4084 students which includes about 2,000 school students from villages and towns. Each school student received Rs.1,000 per annum. Of the total beneficiaries, 2043 were girl students.
The League has a scheme of giving preferential treatment to girl students in one or more categories depending on funds availability and without creating a precedent, at the sole discretion of the Managing Committee. This scheme is intended to encourage the girl students to continue education. Free scholarship scheme is presently the main activity of the League.

Foreign Loan Scholarship
The Corpus for Foreign Loan Scholarship (at the end of March 2018) is only Rs.13 lakhs (Rs. 1.3 million). The League grants a loan scholarship of Rs.2 lakhs (Rs.0.2 million) per student. Hence, at a time, we can help six students for studying abroad.
Due to the small Corpus we decline help to many aspiring GSB students. We propose to increase this Corpus to Rs. 1 crore (Rs.10 million).
We solicit Endowments to enable increase in the quantum of scholarship and also to increase the number of beneficiaries. This fund is revolving in nature. Repayments are ploughed back into the Fund. The donor to this fund is eligible to claim tax relief under section 80G.
