Today, I feel honored to say that I am a ‘Cybagian’. I came across an article about the CybageKhushboo scholarship in a newspaper in 2012. The scholarship has helped me to pursue my education, which would have otherwise come to a standstill. Apart from the funding, CybageKhushboo trained me to improve my soft skills. A special thanks to Ritu ma’am and Elston sir who taught us with so much dedication. CybageKhushboo is doing a laudable job by providing aid to needy students to enable them to fulfill their aspirations."

The CybageKhushboo scholarship made my dreams come true. It came to me at a time when I was planning to forego my chosen stream due to financial constraints. My father being the only earning member, the family income could not support a professional course like BCA. CybageKhushboo took me under their wings and I sailed through BCA, with the Best Student of the Year award and a distinction in the course. CybageKhushboo not only provides financial aid, but also trains the students for all their needs. Elston Sir’s session on facing job interviews gave me immense confidence and I am now placed with the HSBC Development Center today. Once I’ve found my footing, I wish to give back to the community by sponsoring a student in future. I am truly thankful to CybageKhusboo for shaping my life and career.

My father is an autorickshaw driver. Supporting a large family is an everyday struggle for him. After completing HSC, further education seemed unattainable for me. My father found out about CybageKhushboo and the scholarships they provide to the underprivileged yet deserving students. It was with the help of CybageKhushboo, that I was able to complete B.Sc. degree. I am placed with HSBC Software Development and now capable of supporting my younger siblings. I wish to also study further to become a Software Developer.

My father works at MIDC and is the sole bread-winner of our family. Pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering and that too in a city like Pune was impossible. CybageKhushboo helped me fulfill my dream of getting an engineering degree. I have been hired by TC S through campus recruitments. Since this is just the beginning of my career, I wish to learn more and enrich my knowledge.

My father could only support my education till the diploma level. It crushed me to think about halting my education and taking up a job after diploma. But CybageKhushboo understood my plight and supported me with a scholarship to continue with engineering. My confidence was also boosted by the program in soft skills organized by CybageKhushboo. Though I am working with Crompton Greaves Ltd., I want to become an IAS officer so that I can work for the people

Supporting three children with the only source of income being selling snacks at the weekly village bazaar was challenging for my parents to make ends meet. Without the major financial backing of CybageKhushboo, it would have been impossible for me to pursue engineering and develop my skills for the corporate world. I am successfully placed at Accenture. CybageKhushboo gave me the confidence to learn more technologies and aim to become an entrepreneur. Someday, I also wish to write a book on ‘my journey into this technology world’.

My mother has been the only working member of our family. She has supported my needs whenever she could. CybageKhushboo was the beacon of hope when my college admission plans seemed impossible due to high fees. With their help, I could complete my education. I’m now supporting my mother by working for Yardi Software. Using the knowledge gained, in future, I would like to develop an innovative solution.

The rising fees and educational expenses snatch away the little chance that someone like me has to compete with others. The next option is to take a loan, which doesn’t come easily for someone who cannot furnish a financial guarantee. My aim was to seek admission into IIT. I topped MH-CET examination and also obtained a good rank in IIT-JEE.But, that was not enough. IITs charge high fees which is difficult for a middle-class family to pay up. I applied for scholarship at Khushboo and was pleasantly surprised to know that I was selected for the programme.My complete tuition fees is paid by Khushboo.Currently, I am studying at IIT Hyderabad and scored.

After completing my diploma from Sinhgad College with 62.14%, I wanted to enroll for an engineering course. But, financial constraints stood in my way. While I was in dilemma about what I could do next, I heard that Cybage is helping the needy and promising students. I applied for the scholarship. After an interview and a home visit paid by Khushboo personnel, I was awarded the scholarship. Cybage is indeed an angel for me and many poor and deserving students like me. Now, I am confident that I too will have a bright future.

The CybageKhushboo has played a very important role in my life. After I completed my class 12 and successfully cleared the entrance examination, I got admission into a medical college. But, the college fees was beyond what I could afford. So, I lost all my hopes and gave up on my dream of becoming a doctor and so did my parents. At this point, Khushboo helped me by offering a scholarship of Rs 1, 50,000. I will always be thankful to the trust as without them I would not have been able to pursue my dream.

After attaining 91% in class X and 83.33% in class XII, I wanted to study further. My father is an auto driver. It was clear that he could not afford the fees that a professional course demands. I would like to thank CybageKhushboo for believing in me. They selected me for their scholarship program and supported me. I have now completed first year of my engineering.

After completing my class XII from Fergusson College, Pune, I wanted to pursue engineering. But, I knew the financial stress pursuing the course would cause to my parents. Empathizing with my situation, Khushboo extended me the much required help. I got to know of Khushboo from a newspaper; I approached them; and, today, because of Khushboo, I am able to pursue my dream of becoming a Mechanical Engineer. Khushboo has not only helped me financially but also given me the confidence of dreaming big despite all odds! I wish Khushboo touches lives more like me and fills their life with fragrance!

I’ve been a CybageKhushboo Scholarship beneficiary since the last three years. When I first applied for this scholarship, my family was going through some difficult financial times due to my father’s sudden demise. I was considering working part-time to support my studies, but my mother wanted me to focus on my studies. Fortunately, I received this scholarship, it inspired me to achieve first class through all the three years of my BBA course. I also bagged the Best Student Award for 2014. The additional are that CybageKhushboo takes to help students develop their skills make a huge difference; for instance, English sessions taught us how to face job interviews.

Our concern was for a few good students, who were socially and economically backward and wished to pursue the Nursing course. However, they couldn’t apply for bank loans due to the lack of guarantors. When we approached CybageKhushboo, Mrs. Ritu Nathani assured us of her support. She visited the college and interacted with the students. She offered to sponsor 15 eligible girl students every year until the completion of their studies.This unstinted support from Cybage and CybageKhushboo will help the economically backward but deserving girl students to pursue their studies and become independent Nursing professionals. CybageKhushboo’s support is in tune with its motto of ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime’.
