Scholarship programme

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI : Rotary Club of Chennai Phoenix and IEC Technologies on Monday launched `Lead the Skills' scholarship programme to provide technical skills to students from lower income background.

The programme aims to make 5,000 students "employable" and make full use of opportunities brought in by the information technology and telecommuni-cation boom. A lack of formal or technical skills would be addressed through various courses. IEC would sponsor 50 per cent of the course fee.

Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali, Prince of Arcot, inaugurating the scheme, said that addressing India's unemployment problem was the need of the hour.

Vice-Consul Jane Gamble from the US Consulate handed over scholarship certificates to five prospective candidates.
