The Rohith Vemula Scholarship has been constituted in the memory of the deceased Hyderabad student to support underprivileged SC/ST and minority students” said Aaghaz Foundation.

"We received several applications but after careful consideration, it was decided to award the scholarship to Chandan Kumar Ram who hails from Samastipur, Bihar and comes from the lowest rung of society," said Aaghaz President Mazhar Farooqui.

The very first Rohith Vemula Memorial Scholarship by Lucknow-based charity organisation “Aaghaz Foundation” is awarded to Chandan Kumar Ram, a Dalit student whose parents work as laborers.

The scholarship is of Rs 40,000 and a certificate is also awarded along with the money.

Chandan is pursuing law and says he will use the money to enroll himself in a hostel.
