Science Education Foundation has instituted the Science Talent Scholarship for Underprivileged Students (STS-US). The number of dropouts at every level of education is alarmingly high. Dropout is very high at the higher education level. Reasons of these dropouts are many, financial constraints being the number one. Many brilliant students stop studying after class X. Still more number of talented students spoil themselves by joining the so-called colleges, inferior on many accounts. Both of these cause great loss to the state, to the country and to the humanity. The Science Talent Scholarship for Underprivileged Students is instituted to support such talented underprivileged students in all respects such that they utilize their potentiality fully to the benefit of their family, state, country and the humanity.
