KCO Abu Dhabi to distribute Educational Scholarship on August 21

Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi’s premier socio-cultural organization KCO Abu Dhabi will be distributing educational scholarships to economically backward pre-university college students on 21st August 2016 in a function to be held at Centenary Memorial Hall, St Joseph’s Seminary, Jeppu, Mangaluru.


Every year in the month of August, KCO supports deserving and needy students aspiring to continue their education after SSLC and PUC to pursue their career. KCO has partnered with Samanvaya, an NGO which receives applications from these students through various sources and scrutinizes them. Selected students will be invited for the disbursement programme and scholarship cheques are distributed to them directly in the presence of distinguished guests, KCO members and parents of the beneficiaries.

Since 2004, KCO has been supporting this cause of education and more than 900 students have benefited from this scheme. This year 87 students have been selected for the scholarship support. Fr Michael Santhumayour will be the chief guest of the function.

Other than educational scholarship, KCO financially supports people with critical health issues, mass wedding programmes and other social activities through its KCO Trust. Currently, KCO is in its 21st year of existence ably lead by its founder president Leo Rodrigues.


  1. It is very nice of KCO helping the needy without showing the pictures of the recipients. Since it is a need based scholarship, publishing the pictures of recipients would be detrimental for their self-esteem. Keep up the good work and God bless you all.
