Tata Steel Jyoti Fellowship for SC/ST scholars
Tata Steel Jyoti Fellowship – Tata Steel’s West Bokaro Division awarded Jyoti Fellowship Awards to 332 economically disadvantaged students from Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Scheduled Castes (SC) in and around West Bokaro.
On March 13, the toppers were presented with a cash prize, a certificate, and a visual dictionary at an awards event held at the sports facility in Ramgarh, Jharkhand. At the event, a total of 176 girls and 156 boys were honoured.
The fellowship has been funded to the tune of Rs 16.72 lakh.
Madhvi Mishra, deputy commissioner of Ramgarh, and Manish Mishra, general manager of Tata Steel‘s West Bokaro Division, were among the guests of honor.
“This is just the beginning for all those who have been recognized today,” Madhvi Mishra remarked, praising Tata Steel’s efforts in the field of education and skill development. The district administration and Tata Steel are working together to ensure that everyone who aspires is given a chance to succeed and be mainstreamed. One such project is the Jyoti Fellowship. Individuals are motivated to work harder and create a better future for themselves when they receive recognition. I congratulate everyone, especially those who are attempting to thrive in the sphere of education since they are setting an example for others.”

Manish Mishra stated that through its many Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, Tata Steel has made a consistent effort to encourage education in its areas of business. “Education is the cornerstone for tomorrow’s success. The Jyoti Fellowship programme not only helps economically disadvantaged students achieve their goals, but it also keeps their ambitions alive.”
A merit test is used by the Tata Steel Foundation to identify deserving applicants from the company’s operational areas. Every year, students must take a common written test at two levels: high school (Class VIII) and college (graduation first year). Once a student passes the test, he or she is eligible for a new fellowship as well as renewal for subsequent years, provided that he or she receives 45 percent on the annual examination administered by the particular school/college each academic year.
