Most scholarships that I have covered in many of my posts were for students who are high school graduates and about to start on their college careers, but Snehapoorvam Scholarship is a different type of scholarship altogether. Instead of focusing on prospective students who are about to go into college, the Government of Kerala decided to focus on the foundation of the whole matter by establishing this scholarship scheme just for children. Yes, Snehapoorvam Scholarship is only applicable for children and especially orphaned children. Over the years, the number of orphaned children in Kerala started to increase exponentially due to natural disasters, wars, communal riots, and unexpected accidents. As time passes, children begin to grow into teenagers and teenagers into adults and to focus back on their root, Snehapoorvam Scholarship was established to help children financially and also give them hope for a better future.

The eligibility requirements are listed here for orphans, and if you are a guardian / only parent of your child, I think that you can apply for them if they are too young to apply for themselves. The application requirements are pretty straightforward, and the benefits are given out as monthly stipends. Without further ado, let’s get straight into our list of eligibility requirements for the Snehapoorvam Scholarship.
