Sponsored Scholarships & Awards
AGN is a fee based school. Merit and Financial aid scholarships are awarded
to deserving students every year. Currently about 8% of the total students receive support
from sponsored programs. GIFT is very proud of the fact many of the scholarships are being sponsored by individual donors
from across the globe (USA, UK, Australia, India, etc.) The sponsorship can be set up on an
annual basis or as an one-time endowment.

Rotary Club of Adelaide Parks Scholarships:
This program, perphaps the most saught after scholarship at the school,
awards scholarships to enable deserving students hailing from
the larger area around Konganapuram to study 9th through 12th standards at AGN.
The selection of students is based on academic potential,
financial need as well as societal consciousness. It is administered
through written tests and selection interviews. The awardees, named
as Adelaide Parks Rotary Scholars, will receive full-funding for
tuition, books and transport/hostel expenses for the four years of study at AGN. The objective
of the program is to support talented students who coannot otherwise afford to attend a
school like AGN, and to encourage social reponsibility so that the scholars will
eventually return to enrich their native area. Led by the Rotary Club of Adelaide Parks,
Australia, the sponsorship is also supported by Rotary Clubs of Victor Harbour (Australia),
Sankari Rotary Club (India) and Rotary Foundation.
The first batch of students entred the program in 2010-11 academic year
and all of them have successfully graduated from the school in 2014.

her parents Dr.Vinod & Dr. Tarlika Thakkar to institue the awards to inspire and reward outstanding skills development in
English and Computers, both among students and teachers. While these awards do not carry any financial support today, they have
been nurturing a healthy competition among students and staff over the past decade. You can click the links on the
