Hyderabad: Ten students of Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS) successfully secured admission in the prestigious National Forensic Sciences University in Gujarat.
TSWREIS, terming the achievement a defining moment, tweeted, "For the first time, 10 students created a record of sorts by securing admission in the prestigious National Forensic Sciences University, Gujarat and a defining moment. Thanks to the government of Telangana for opening up a plethora of opportunities for poor students in higher education."
Considering the socio-economic and educational backwardness of the Scheduled Caste communities, the government of Telangana realized that starting separate schools for these communities was the right measure to provide better access to quality education. Against this background, the government established social welfare residential schools in areas predominantly populated by the SC communities.
The society with 268 institutions and 1,50,000 students has been providing quality education in English medium up to graduation.
Earlier this year in July, three TSWREIS students had bagged the Community College Initiate Programme (CCIP) fellowships and had made their way to community colleges in the United States of America.
