UPES is committed to improving the state of society and benefitting it. Another one of its flagship initiatives is Project Prohatsahan. Through this, it lends support to five underprivileged meritorious students of PYDS Academy of Learning, Purukul (Dehradun), which is promoted by an NGO that provides free education to bright underprivileged children. UPES charges these five students a nominal one-time fee and gives them up to ROO lakhs as scholarship to study at the university. It also pays for their laptops and uniforms and gives them a 60% discount on hostel accommodation and transportation facilities.
