The Sakal India Foundation (SIA) was founded in 1959 as an educational organization which is dedicated to providing enriched learning experiences. Sakal India Foundations provides scholarships to Indian students proposing to pursue post-graduate studies from abroad or research studies leading to PhD.
In 2018 a total of 51 students received an interest-free loan scholarship, each of INR 70,000.
The grants were offered to students, who are going for their master’s degrees in various areas from artificial intelligence to management specialization in different places like Germany, New York, Boston, Baltimore, etc.
The students expressed that unlike other scholarships, which are granted from the social and economic background of the family, the foundation judges a student purely on their merit.
