Kanak Aggarwal reflects the commitment of Crystal Crop Protection Limited’s Managing Director to extend the benefit of the scholarship to female students pursuing agriculture courses.

This initiative promotes and encourages the aspirations of next-generation students by providing financial support and a plethora of opportunities to young women who are passionate about making a difference in the field of agriculture. The scholarship program will offer financial assistance to 21 female students for pursuing graduation programs in 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year and 4th year making a total of 84 scholarships every year.

Mr. Ankur Aggarwal, Managing Director at Crystal Crop Protection Limited said, “At Crystal Crop, we hold in high regard the pivotal role that women play in India’s agricultural landscape. We are keenly aware of the hurdles they confront and champion the vision of a farming community where gender parity thrives across all spheres. With the launch of this scholarship program, we pay homage to my late mother, a fervent advocate for females’ education. Inspired by her passion, we are driven to carry forward her legacy by nurturing the aspirations of young women committed to excelling in the agricultural sector. Our goal is to furnish them with top-notch education and abundant opportunities within the field. By equipping these budding talents with the requisite support, we envision a future where they not only excel academically but also embark on fulfilling careers”.

The scholarship program will not only provide financial aid but female students will be able to take advantage of the college mentorship opportunities and network via organised events. They will also be mentored in their career development through workshops.

The program will commence from the upcoming session in July/August 2024. Applications for the scholarship program are now open for eligible female students who meet the criteria and have demonstrated academic excellence.
