A holistic approach is what we believe in at Deeksha to enable every Deekshaite’s academic aspirations. Exposure to different areas and fields plays a huge role here. Deekshaites who have an aptitude for the Basic Sciences are encouraged to take up the KVPY (Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana) exam. According to KVPY (run by IISc) - “The objective of the program is to identify students with talent and aptitude for research; help them realize their academic potential; encourage them to take up research careers in Science, and ensure the growth of the best scientific minds for research and development in the country.”
We are really happy to share that 16 students from Deeksha have cleared both the rounds of the KVPY National level Fellowship exam, 2015(Round 1 - Thorough screening of the application and an aptitude test. Round 2 – Interview) and received the highly coveted fellowship.
