Dr. Reddy’s Foundation Sashakt Scholarship 2020 for B.Sc Girl Students

About Dr Reddy’s Foundation

Dr Reddy’s Foundation is a not-for-profit organization set up in 1996 to enable socially and economically vulnerable groups to take control of their lives. We develop and test innovative solutions to address complex social problems and promote the scaling up of impact by leveraging partnerships. We work with Children, Youth (including persons with disabilities), Women and Households across 18 States in India.

Our Founder’s Vision

Dr Kallam Anji Reddy, founder of Dr Reddy’s Laboratories, was a renowned scientist, entrepreneur and philanthropist. About a decade after setting up Dr Reddy’s Laboratories, he was encouraged by the possibilities of helping others to also reap the benefits of India’s economic growth. He started Dr Reddy’s Foundation in 1996, with the vision of assisting disadvantaged youth to have access to quality education and developing skills to keep pace with modern day challenges. It is in keeping with his vision that we are facilitating this opportunity for young girls to become scientists.
