The Dakshana Foundation works with the Government of India through the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (MHRD) for its 2-year JEE/NEET scholarship program.

Dakshana's mission to uplift deserving students in India from the shackles of poverty is embodied in its 1-year scholarship program for JEE/NEET. This scholarship is offered as a residential program at the Dakshana campus in Pune. Through this program, Dakshana aims at reaching out to students in government schools in the different states in India. This is done through partnerships with state governments and bodies. 

Currently Dakshana receives support from state governments in reaching out to students in the following states:


Andhra Pradesh


Uttar Pradesh

We strive to be able to reach every deserving meritorious student in India so that dreams and aspirations of those who cannot dare to dream are fulfilled. We seek support to partner with all state governments and school systems who share this vision with us.
