Vijaya Award

The SKV Board of Governors instituted The Vijaya Raje Award in 2006.

Scindia Kanya Vidyalaya has decades of glorious history of providing holistic education to girls from India and abroad. It has a large number of Alumni who have excelled in their fields nationally as well as globally.

An institution derives its strength from the achievements of its alumni who play a significant role in the growth of the organisation.

It is with this sentiment that we invite nominations for The Vijaya Award.

The SKV Board of Governors instituted The Vijaya Raje Award in 2006 to honour its outstanding Alumni who have demonstrated professional excellence and earned recognition for contributions to human welfare that transcend professional accomplishments.

By inviting nominations from all quarters, the Selection Committee of the SKV Board of Governors ensures that it has the chance to review the broadest possible range of qualified nominees. An Alumni who has completed 25 years of passing out from SKV is eligible to be nominated, either personally or by another Alumni.

The Vijaya Award Recipients are highly accomplished individuals in their own domains such as health care, performing arts, visual arts, authors, entrepreneurs, scientists, legal sector, politicians, government servants, social sector or persons of comparable stature, who clearly exemplify the excellence to which SKV is so deeply committed.
