Scholarships For Cadets :
Petarian Foundation initiated a program for scholarships for cadets at Cadet College Petaro. This program is based on need cum merit. Only those cadets who have financial difficulties and who demonstrate academic and other capabilities are granted scholarships.

Over the past years, the amounts of scholarships disbursed by Petarian Foundation is as follows:

  • 2004-2005 : Rs. 250,000 to 6 cadets
  • 2005-2006 : Rs. 500,000 to 10 cadets
  • 2006-2007 : Rs. 750,000 to 31 cadets
  • 2007-2008 : Rs. 100,000 to to 2 cadets
  • 2008-2009 : Rs. 100,000 to to 2 cadets
  • 2009-2010 : Rs. 1,495,000 to 45 cadets
  • 2010-2011 : Rs. 1,460,000 to 42 cadets
  • 2011-2012 : Rs. 2,070,000 to 71 cadets
  • 2012-2013 : Rs. 1,623,500 to 51 cadets

We hope to increase the total fund available to Rs. 2,500,000 over the next year to raise the average amount of the scholarship value in line with the inflation, and to give benefit to more students who meet the criteria of need-cum-merit

Major Donors:

  • Nazim Diver Scholarship: The largest contributor to the scholarship fund has been “Nazim Diver” and his family since the year 2005. During 2009 and 2010, Nazim Diver and family contributed Rs. 400,000 to this fund each year, Rs. 500,000 in 2011 andRs. 600,000 in 2012.

  • Financial need of the students based on the income of the family and estimated expenses (documentary proof of income and expenses is obtained from candidates).
  • Academic and extra-curricular activities record of the cadet (if financial need is established).
    Normally, new entrants to Class VIII will be eligible for fresh scholarships.
  • In case requested supporting documents are not provided, it can lead to reduction in assessed scholarship amount.
    3. Period of scholarship: Scholarships are awarded for a period of one year only.

4.  Renewal of scholarship: The scholarship would be renewed automatically for a subsequent year as long as the cadet maintains proper academic standards set by the college and the foundation jointly.
