  1. It is good development to be considered for a scholarship. Shell is pursuing a noble cause. But after scholarship we are looking forward to job positions. With the present global unemployment, securing jobs is becoming increasingly harder irrespective of qualifications and candidate's profie. This issue requires collective effort aiming at creating jobs and making people self reliant.
