Objective of NUA-O Scholarship Odisha

The purpose of introducing NUA-O Scholarship is to provide Odisha students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs with financial assistance. Many skilled or meritorious students will be excited or motivated to further their knowledge. A scholarship will be awarded to the chosen students for the entire period of their course. Many students are very driven to achieve success in their studies, yet economically deprived children are unable to pay the ever-increasing cost of tuition and academics. This will inspire a great deal of gifted students to follow their passions and bring pride to their families.
