Free Residential School for Bright Underprivileged Children:
This residential Gurukul is run centrally, presently at Vrindavan, Mathura in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, and is meant for intellectually gifted children who are specially dedicated to studies. Children from poor families are given priority, though other parents may also send their children to Tejasvi Gurukul for its one-year Foundation Course if they are very keen on their children receiving a grounding in Indian culture and civilization and the worldview derived from the Bhagavad Gita, and for all-round development of their children. In the residential set-up at the Tejasvi Gurukul, children are guided 24 hours a day according to a carefully prepared programme for total development of their personality. There are no compulsory fees for anything. However, the guardians are free to provide food grains, books, dress, shoes, gurukul uniform, laptop, Kindle or tablet for the children according to their ability. They may also donate money.
The Tejasvi Gurukul organises one-year foundation course for children of age 10 to 13. After completing this course, children can go back to the mainstream schooling if they so like. Otherwise, they can stay at the Gurukul and complete their formal school education and the final board examinations here itself.
