In a first such initiative, the Bangalore University has adopted two girls who got admission in the varsity’s post-graduate courses for the current academic year and struggling to pay the fees.
While one girl will pursue MA in English, the other has taken Law. Though they had merit and got the seats, they did not have money for the fees. Finally, they approached BU authorities, who decided to adopt them and educate them. They will be provided with free hostel facility at the Jnana Bharathi campus.
Prof K N Ninge Gowda, registrar administration, told Express, “A few weeks back, a girl from Chamarajnagar approached me seeking a free hostel seat. As she does not belong to SC/ST community, we did not have options to give her a free seat. When we asked about her parents, she said she grew up at an orphanage in Chamarajnagar. Finally, we decided to adopt such students and bear the entire cost of their education.”
“We have cross-checked about their background with the orphanages where they grew up. We have told the students to concentrate on academics and perform well,” added the Registrar.
Though there is no such quota reserved for orphans, the university decided to adopt them so that they can continue with their higher education.
“We will continue this every year from here on. We will place it before the Syndicate for resolution,” added Gowda.
Meanwhile, the teaching faculty of the university is creating a corpus fund by collecting a minimum of `500, to be used to educate the adopted students of the university in the future. The fund is not limited to girls, even boys can get its benefit.
