A Kerala Government agency talent search has revealed high scientific temperament and aptitude among girl students. Seventy-five out of 82 students selected for the Pratibha merit scholarships are girls, according to an official spokesman.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will give away the scholarships for 2012-13 at a function to be held here on Thursday in the presence of V. N. Rajasekhara Pillai, executive vice-president, KSCSTE.

K.R. Lekha, head, women scientists division, KSCSTE; J. Letha, director, technical education; and B.G. Sreedevi, director, NATPAC, will speak on the occasion.

Rosmi Abraham, student at Sacred Heart College, Thevara in Kochi, has topped the list of scholarship winners securing 100 per cent marks in the qualifier examination (higher secondary). The full rank list is available on www.kscste.kerala.gov.in.

The Cuncil is also celebrating the occasion as International Women’s Day.
