“My father worked as a tailor and in such a scenario, IIT was a far-fetched dream. When my dream on the verge of getting shattered, I appeared for FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40 Selection Test and was offered PINNACLE – Two Year Integrated School Program with 100% scholarship. FIITJEE supported me in every possible way, not only academically but also morally and financially. Fear grips me and I shudder at the thought of what I would have been doing today, had FIITJEE not come as a messiah in my life, at the right moment “said MSK Manohar, AIR 5, JEE Advanced 2018.
Another student, Gulshan Kumar qualified Fortunate 40 in 2021 and got the opportunity to enrol in FIITJEE’s Two Year Classroom Program (IX to XII) secured AIR 122 in JEE Advanced 2023.
“I sincerely thanks to FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40 program, I’ve transformed my life and secured a successful future by cracking JEE Advanced. Fortunate 40 provided not only elevated me to cloud nine but also positively impacted my family’s future. With the support of FIITJEE and my hard work, I’ve achieved more than I thought possible, paving the way for a brighter tomorrow. Grateful for the opportunity, I look forward to continued success and growth in my educational journey. Since my father is a cloth weaver who is earning less than Rs.10000 per month, FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40 has been a life changer stage who has unlocked the doors to a better life for me and my family”, said Gulshan Kumar, AIR 122, JEE Advanced 2023.
Another student, Anand Kumar got the opportunity to enrol in FIITJEE’s SUPREME –Four Year Integrated School Program (IX to XII) secured AIR 369 in JEE Advanced 2020.
“I had a dream to become an IITian, but I could never think of ways to fulfil my academic dreams due to the financial condition of my family. My father is a cloth weaver and was not able to gather enough money to get me enrolled in any institute for IIT-JEE preparation. Fortunate 40 helped me fulfil my dream and provided me free education in an unmatchable academic atmosphere. Through FIITJEE’s Fortunate 40, I was granted 100% fee waiver both on its program as well as hostel fees for four years. At FIITJEE, under the guidance of faculty and access to the top-notch study material, I could turn all my academic weaknesses into strengths. I, sincerely, thank FIITJEE for changing my life and career for better” said Anand Kumar, AIR 369, JEE Advanced 2020.
Mr. Vinod Kumar Agrawal, Managing Partner & Head, FIITJEE Dwarka Centre says, “Taking the initiative of helping the economically underprivileged to an extra high level, in the year 2008, FIITJEE started FORTUNATE 40 – An Initiative to provide World-Class Training to serious Students from financially weaker backgrounds and empowering them to succeed with Top Ranks in JEE Main, JEE Advanced & other competitive exams. With the competition for entering IITs 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. Our FORTUNATE 40 Program 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 benchmarks of success and have made us immensely proud.”
