Vidyadhanam – Education

Education is the foundation upon which the development of an individual’s cognitive, psychological and intellectual faculties rests. Our CSR programme for education, Vidyadhanam, ensures support to thousands of young learners at several stages of their educational journey.

Tata Motors extends support to deserving students as well as the holistic development of education infrastructure and services. The focus of our education programme remains not just on the academic, but also on the physical and sociological development, along with inculcation of values. We pay emphasis on the overall personality development of students and facilitate their mentoring by professionals from their areas of interest.

The key projects under Vidyadhanam include:
  • Scholarships
  • Financial aid to students of IITs and government engineering colleges
  • Coaching classes
  • Special coaching for IIT-JEE and other competitive exams
  • School infrastructure improvement
  • Co-curricular activities
Encouraging students to participate in co-curricular activities ensures their holistic growth.

Scholarships and financial aid

Jointly instituted by Tata Motors and Tata Communications, the Tata Samarth scholarship is a mentor-based rolling scholarship programme supporting bright young engineers belonging to the economically weaker sections of society. Thus far, we have awarded scholarships to 50 students from five engineering colleges affiliated with the College of Engineering, Pune. These students are also being mentored by senior leaders of the two companies. We have also partnered with the IIT Bombay Alumni Association to extend financial aid to IIT-B students in need. About 40 students have been supported till now under this programme.

Special coaching classes

In order to tackle the issue of high dropout rates, low percentages of students passing exams and weak academic performances in the secondary school system, Tata Motors has partnered with reputed non-profits to provide quality education to students studying in municipal schools. In partnership with the Global Education Trust (the CSR arm of leading coaching class institute Mahesh Tutorials), we are providing special coaching to around 23,000 students of grades 9 and 10 enrolled in over 140 municipal schools of Mumbai. Based on the encouraging outcome of this project, we have deployed similar projects in communities around our other manufacturing locations. At some places, we have also set up e-learning technology to promote digital learning.

Special coaching for IIT-JEE and competitive exams

Tata Motors has partnered with Avanti Fellows, an NGO, to support bright students of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) schools preparing for IIT-JEE and other competitive entrance exams. As part of the programme, we provide special coaching to students at JNV Mangalore and JNV Puducherry. We have also deployed innovative peer-to-peer learning pedagogy at these places. As a result of the intervention, the overall entrance exam performance of students from these schools has significantly improved.
