As a social initiative taken by the country’s premier institute FIITJEE, for training IIT–JEE aspirants, Fortunate 40 Selection Test will be conducted nation-wide on February 6 and 13. Selected students will be notified and admitted to the programme with 100 per cent scholarships. The test will be conducted in Proctored Online mode only (can be taken from the safety of your home). The programme financially supports capable students soon going to class IX and Class XI and whose total parental income is less than Rs 10,000 per month. FIITJEE supports these meritorious students in their preparation to achieve their dream goal, by awarding 100 per cent scholarships on FIITJEE programmes and 100 per cent waivers on hostel charges. For Integrated School Programmes, the school fee will be charged from the student (at some locations scholarship on school fee may also be awarded).
The FORTUNATE 40 batch for each programme, at each location, will have a maximum of 40 students only. Despite financial constraints many students in the past got selected through FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40 and pursued their dream to become IITians. Through FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40, MSK Manohar from Vijayawada got the opportunity to enroll in FIITJEE’s PINNACLE Two Year Integrated Programme and with his hard work and FIITJEE’s coaching, he went on to achieve AIR 5 in JEE Advanced, 2018. Another student from Bihar, Anand Kumar got the opportunity to enroll in FIITJEE’s SUPREME –Four Year Integrated School Programme (IX to XII) having secured AIR 369 In JEE Advanced 2020. With the vision to provide quality education for all children irrespective of their background, ‘Fortunate 40’ programme has been designed by FIITJEE.
This initiative has already promoted equal and fair opportunity in education and removed any disparity between students on basis of their economic background. “With the competition for entering IIT’s becoming stiffer and stiffer with time, it is not an easy exercise even for aspirants with intellectual capability and potential, since methodical rigorous training and guidance is needed to crack JEE and students from economically less fortunate backgrounds often fail to avail the benefits of such coaching programmes. The programme is designed to propel into the big league such students, who might get lost in absence of essential guidance and training. Over the past few years, many of these students nurtured by us have created new benchmarks of success,” said Amareswara Rao, Centre Head, FIITJEE, Nagpur. “The number of seats in IITs are limited but any student preparing for JEE Main and Advanced at FIITJEE reaps benefits beyond JEE Main and Advanced. FIITJEE takes pride in improving attitude, creativity, analytical skills and IQ of all its students,” Rao added.
The last date to register for test is two days prior to the respective dates and to be eligible for the FORTUNATE 40 batch, students must clear the individual subject cut-off and also the grand total cut-off. Online registration can be done through /f40.htm and the Self Declaration Form (of parental income) needs to be uploaded.
