Acropolis has always been driven by the vision of Shri Ashok Sojatia, Chairman BOG to develop the next generation of leadership for organisations, communities and society at large. As a part of his vision, the Acropolis Scholarships were instituted to help those who are brilliant in academics and deserve world-class education but don’t have the means.
At Acropolis, we believe in rewarding the hard work and excellence achieved by meritorious students in their academic and sports endeavors. The Acropolis Scholarships have been initiated to encourage the talents of such students, thereby strengthening the roots of our future generation. A small step towards the collective goal of making India the knowledge superpower of the world. As part of this ongoing initiative, in 2018 more than Rs. 20,00,000 of Scholarships have been awarded to students on need or merit basis.
