About CAN Foundation
The Confederation of Alumni for National Law Universities (‘CAN Foundation’) is an entity established for working towards promotion of students (or Alumni) connected with all the National Law Universities (NLU’s) of the Nation. It helps students and aspiring fresh graduates by supporting them financially and mentoring them to hone their professional abilities.
The Foundation, which is a body of Alumni drawn from various NLU’s was conceptualized as a helping hand to help the financially underprivileged legal geniuses in overcoming their hardships. It aids them in securing their education and other co- curricular activities, thus expanding their access to a multitude of opportunities.
About Project “Eklavya”
The Foundation has two flagship projects namely Project “Eklavya” and “Dhananjay”. Under the scheme of Project Eklavya, financially unsound students across National Law Universities are selected by a distinguished panel of legal experts through a rigorous process and are then aided and mentored by the Foundation. CAN Foundation is pleased to announce the 3rd Edition of its Flagship Project, Eklavya 2021. The Project seeks to assist young, meritorious scholars from NLUs across the country who may require financial assistance in undertaking their education at premier law institutions of the country with ease. This assistance is provided by means of an annual Scholarship Amount to ease their burden and help them in achieving their goals.
•The student must be enrolled in an Undergraduate Programme at any National Law University (NLU) with a minimum of 65% aggregate/average marks in the last 3 Semesters. (A student in the 2nd year of study may send records of the semesters they have completed.) 1st Year Students (Batch of 2021-2026) are not eligible to apply under Eklavya 2021.
•The Candidate must provide an undertaking that their scholarship shall be discontinued in the future, if the Candidate fails to secure a minimum of 65% marks in any subsequent trimester/semester following the grant of scholarship to them. However, this condition would be suitably relaxed in the face of extreme unforeseen emergencies/contingencies occurring with the candidate as allowed by the Selection Committee[Explanation: The word ‘extreme’ in this case shall mean to construe a condition rendering the Candidate incapable of attending classes. The decision of the Selection Committee, exercising its discretion in this regard, shall be final and binding.]
