Earn and Learn Scheme
Earn and Learn Scheme of the SPPU is implemented by the Institute. The main objective of the scheme is to develop a student as a multifaceted personality with academic excellence and a commitment to an egalitarian society. India lives in her villages and to bridge the gap between rural Bharat and urban India, this scheme is basically undertaken for the benefit of students coming from rural areas, who are economically backward, intelligent, and meritorious but cannot afford higher education, needy and financially hard pressed. It inculcates in the student the idea that no work is big or small and develops a work culture with the right aptitude. This is a vision of keeping our youth gainfully employed as well as to contribute to civil society.
Special Guidance Scheme
Special Guidance is another Scheme of the Savitribai Phule Pune University being implemented by the Institute. The basic objective of this scheme is to help those students who are deprived of the latest knowledge of the subject they undertake at the first year level. Secondly, to inculcate the urge to educate one self, and that education liberates one internally as well as externally; thirdly, to offer guidance to students in their career choices and the relevant subjects to be pursued by them to attain their best potential. The enrolment under this scheme is basically for students who are economically, financially backward and also to the reserved category students.
Personality Development Scheme (for Girls)
This is a scheme introduced by the SPPU to develop the confidence and personality of lady students who come from rural areas and are deprived sections of society. The marginalization and deprivation is double if you are a woman and from the backward or scheduled castes. The main objective of this scheme is to develop a critical mind, self-confidence and a commitment to society. The lady students are given training in health, law and social activities. They are also given training in self-employment and all possible other activities that enhance their social confidence. Funds for organizing these activities are provided by the SPPU.
