Fortunate 40 - A social initiative by FIITJEE to help the economically weak students

As social initiative taken by FIITJEE, for training IIT – JEE aspirants it’s Fortunate 40 admission test will be conducted nation-wide on February 3, 2019.

The program financially supports capable Students soon going to class IX and XI and whose total parental income is less than Rs. 10,000/- per month. FIITJEE supports these meritorious Students in their preparation for achieving their dream goal, by awarding 100% scholarships for FIITJEE program & 100% waiver on hostel charges. For Integrated School Program the school fee will be charged from the student (at some locations scholarship on school fee may also be awarded). The Fortunate 40 batch for each program, at each location, will have a maximum of 40 Students only.

Despite financial constraints many students in the past got selected through FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40 and pursued their dream to become IITians. Through FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40 Test MSK Manohar from Vijayawada got the opportunity to enrol in FIITJEE’s PINNACLE program and coupled with his hard work and FIITJEE’s coaching, he went on to achieve AIR 5 in JEE Advanced, 2018.

“My father worked as a tailor and in such a scenario it was mere dream to even think of IIT. When my dream was on the verge of getting doomed, I appeared for the FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40 Test and was offered PINNACLE – Two Year Integrated School Program with 100% scholarship. FIITJEE supported me in each possible way not only academically but morally and financially. Fear grips me and I shudder at the thought of what I would have been doing today, had FIITJEE not come as a messiah in my life, at the right moment said MSK Manohar, AIR 5 JEE Advanced Topper 2018.

With the vision to provide quality education for all children irrespective of their background, ‘Fortunate 40’ program has been designed by FIITJEE. This initiative has already promoted equal and fair opportunity in education and removed any disparity between students on basis of their economic background.

“With the competition for entering IIT’s becoming stiffer and stiffer with time, it is not an easy exercise even for aspirants with intellectual capability and potential, since methodical rigorous training and guidance is much needed to crack JEE and students from economically less fortunate backgrounds often fail to avail the benefits of such coaching programmes. Our FORTUNATE 40 Program is designed to propel into the big league for such students, who might get lost in absence of essential guidance and training. Over the past few years, many of these students nurtured by us have created new benchmarks of success and have made us immensely proud,” says R L Trikha, Director, FIITJEE.
