Students of today are the future. It is the responsibility of the society to find out the hidden talent from the lot of students and nurture them. In addition, provide them the support they need. So their skills can grown overwhelmingly. These skills are expected to make the society better.
There are many universities, therefore offers scholarships to the talents. And so do so many Organizations (including NGOs and Non-profit ones).
Microsoft also does a similar gesture. Since last 10 years Microsoft arranges the “Imagine Cup“. They are inviting the student innovators from all over the world.
