Banaras Hindu University (BHU) will institute two scholarships of Rs 25,000 each for the students of MA Jyotish in the Department of Jyotish at Sanskrit Vidya Dharma Vigyana Sankaya (Faculty of Sanskrit Vidya Dharma Vijnana).
The university has received a donation of Rs 10 lakh to start the scholarships for the first and second year students of Acharya (Jyotish – Ganit) i.e. MA in Jyotish (Ganit) on merit cum means basis. B N Shukla, who hails from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, has donated the sum to establish these scholarships in the memory of his father Late Prem Narayan Shukla and mother Late Shyama Devi.
The university launched the Pratidana initiative in February, last year, to support scholarships for meritorious students, need-based financial aid, enhance learning opportunities, promote excellence in teaching and enable impactful research among others.
