SPIC MACAY Scholarships

Introduction

The SPIC MACAY scholarships were introduced in 1986 by the SPIC MACAY society in 1986. The scheme allows students an insight into the teacher student or guru-shishya relationship of our traditional Hindu culture. With this scheme the SPIC MACAY gives students an opportunity to learn about the exploits of great recognised personalities who left a great impression on the whole society with the help of their achievements in the professional field.

While introducing the scholarship, it is felt that if a student was given the chance to spend time with a guru or teacher for a month during the student's summer vacation it would leave a great impact on the mind of student.

The student would experience a different style of living condition and education system than his own which would inspire them to bring about a sense of fulfillment in their lives.
