After Helping Migrants, Sonu Sood Now Turns Messiah For Underprivileged Students; Vouches To Offer Scholarships
One name that ruled the headlines the most during the lockdown and that too for all the right reasons is of Sonu Sood. The actor came out to support the needy in tough times and won the hearts of the millions. Sonu Sood became the messiah of migrants as he arranged for transportation for those who wanted to travel back to their hometown from the cities. He even arranged for the travel of those stranded outside the country. Now, he has decided to come forward and help underprivileged students.

Ever since the lockdown has been imposed, schools and colleges have been shut. The only way to deal with it is online classes, however, there are many who cannot afford to pay fees or buy a phone/laptop to carry on with the education. Sonu Sood has decided to help such people. He will now be giving scholarships to students in the name of his late mother.

Talking about the same, Sonu Sood said, “During the past few months, I have seen how the underprivileged struggled to pay for their children’s education. While some did not have phones to attend online classes, others did not have money to pay the fees. So, I have tied up with universities across the country to offer scholarships under the name of my mother, Professor Saroj Sood. She used to teach in Moga (Punjab), free of cost. She had told me to take her work ahead, and I feel that this is the right time," as reported by ETimes.

He further went on to add that students who belong to families whose income is less than 2 lakh a year, and have a good academic record will be eligible for this scholarship.  (Also Read: Sonu Sood Extends Help For NEET And JEE Students; Actor To Arrange Private Transportation 'Incase' Examinations Don't Get Postponed)
