Grameen Shramik Pratishthan (GSP INDIA) is proud to offer seven comprehensive scholarship programs to support and empower marginalized and needy students. These programs, initiated in 2017 with the Late Mrs. Savita Sude Adolescent Girls Development and Scholarship Program, have helped countless students, primarily girls from rural areas, to complete their education and become first-generation learners in their families. Through these initiatives, GSP has played a crucial role in integrating disadvantaged groups into mainstream education.

For the past 42 years, GSP has been dedicated to supporting disabled youth in rural areas. We are particularly proud to announce the launch of the Udaan Scholarship Program for students with disabilities in Maharashtra, backed by the CSR support of Swedish companies SKF India, Sandvik, and Atlas Copco. This program offers financial assistance of up to one lakh rupees, covering accommodation, academic fees, and assistive devices.

Capacity Building Support

Beyond financial assistance, GSP is committed to the holistic development of our scholarship recipients. We organize capacity-building workshops, conduct psychometric tests, and offer mentoring to help students excel academically and develop essential life skills. These workshops help students overcome educational, personal, and public obstacles, fostering mental relaxation, interpersonal rapport, and confidence enhancement.
