Anjum Chopra scholarship announced for young, talented female cricketers - New Delhi News
by IANS | Updated Jan 10, 2023
The scholarship includes financial support of INR 1 lakh per year towards training at PUSH Sports Arenas and the opportunity to participate in exclusive tours within India and abroad over a 12-month period.
This scholarship will help aspiring athletes achieve their full potential on and off the field. These opportunities have come when Push Sports continues to focus strongly on Women's and Girls' cricket across the country.
The Anjum Chopra Scholarship program goes much beyond training and exposure; it will also work towards getting the athletes best equipment and gear through corporate sponsorships and work with them on a long-term basis to craft a successful sports career under the guidance of experienced professionals and mentors.
Padma Shri and Arjuna awardee Anjum Chopra said, "It is a privilege and pride to be associated with such a scholarship programme."
On the announcement, Puru Singh, founder of Push Sports and former Delhi State player said, "Ms Anjum Chopra will closely monitor the ten selected athletes herself. Push Sports stands for Passionate Underdog Sports House, and this is a well-thought-out gesture to give a firm push to the young girl/ women players that are training with us."
