Every year, many meritorious students hailing from poor families are forced to discontinue their higher education due to lack of funds. Keeping alive their motto of ‘investing in the smallest dreams’, Magma Fincorp Ltd., a leading NBFC headquartered in Kolkata, has come forward to provide financial assistance in form of scholarships to such students under their scheme “M-Scholar”. Students will be selected on the basis of their academic performance and socio-economic background of their families who are unable to support their children to continue studies.
