" I am Gowri, a 2nd year MSW student from Stella Maris College, Chennai. I am thankful to Cognizant Foundation for giving me a scholarship which has helped me carry out my research and pay my academic fees. My research is on “Problems Faced by Visually Challenged Persons at the Workplace”. With the help of this scholarship, I will be able to do my best in helping visually challenged persons like me in the future."
