Mumbai: Fair and Lovely Foundation has invited applications from girls, hailing from economically backward families but intent on pursuing higher education, for its annual scholarship programme.

The scholarships, in its eighth year now, are given to girls aspiring to complete their graduation, post-graduation or PhD. The maximum limit paid per girl is Rs one lakh, a release said here today.

Girls should have passed their secondary or higher secondary examinations with an aggregate of over 60 per cent to qualify for the financial aid. So far over 700 girls have benefited through the programme.

"The aid is given to promising young girls, who have the commitment and determination to make a difference in their lives," said the release.
