Being in the 21st century, we want a better education system in our country because, as we tend to develop, we understand the need for education. Poor education is the root problem of why the system of India is so dilapidated. We always curse the system. Still, if we all start taking the small initiatives, then we can see the change we want, this is possible when we hold each other’s hand and walk together to make a way towards a better country where the education system is top-notch, and the citizens are responsible for their duties. 

The root cause of all problems is probably a faulty education system, as that’s the basic cause. The State Government, as well as the central Government, has started taking the initiative to teach the students by giving scholarships or to support the students by way of rewards or offering some sort of financial support. When a student passes, class 10 is often taken out of school, and boys are forced to work in shops or like laborers, whereas girls are married off. Though India is a developing country, some practices are an obstacle when we think of development and betterment. So in this article, we will get to know about some of the best scholarships that will be applicable for the students who are in class 11. These can save many futures and help in the betterment of everyone.
