With a student first approach, Sunstone, a leading higher education service provider believes in the potential each student has. To bring out the potential of these students, Sunstone has partnered with the Lucknow Super Giants as associate sponsors for the fifteenth edition of the T20 cricket league.
With this collaboration, Sunstone has launched the #JeetegaSparkHi campaign, which aims to provide scholarships to worthy students for the duration of the tournament. Sunstone believes that each student has a spark, and through this campaign, they will provide financial assistance to those who are deserving of the scholarship.
About the Campaign
The scholarship will act as a financial aid for students looking to pursue their course of interest, making them corporate ready with industry-ready skills and expertise. This unique opportunity will provide an overall scholarship amount of ₹4 Cr, and eligible students can stand a chance to get a scholarship of as much as ₹30,000 per student. The scholarship campaign will be available from i.e. from 28th March to 29th May 2022.
The most attractive feature of this scholarship is that the amount will be determined based on the results produced by Lucknow Super Giants. The amount will be allocated and determined accordingly for every run, boundary, six, catch, wicket and half-century. The table below shows the amount for each category.
