PRL (Physics Research Laboratory) is committed to inculcate scientific attitude and approach among students active at the highest level of education and research from school. Students in remote rural areas face economic hardships as well as lack of guidance and many other problems.

PLRL is aware of such social issues. Keeping this problem in mind, we are delighted to institute scholarships in the memory of our founder Mr. Vikram Sarabhai. The objective of this scholarship is to encourage and support economically weaker students from rural areas of Gujarat to pursue higher education in science. The name of this scholarship is Vikram Sarabhai Incentive Yojana (VIKAS Scholarship).
