IIP’s SLG Scholarship is introduced in the honor and memory of Late. Sri S L Goyal. He was a notable personality during his service in the public sector, a noble person and the father of the founders of IIP Foundation. He was a simple man who started out from his village to end up in an honored designation at the government sector and live a life of fulfillment. He started from a small place and achieved a great deal, but what he stood for throughout his life was education, he motivated his children to invest their life in the education sector and so they did. He was a humble man with a simple life yet a vision such grand. Following his footsteps and imbibing his philosophy, IIP has decided to serve the needy and the deserving.

A dream is a dream, but achievers do make it their reality. And believe it or not achievers do exist irrespective of their economical strata. We believe in those achievers. We believe in photographers who walk an extra mile to prove their fate wrong, to achieve their dream reality. They did not listen to the material world that said, ‘you can’t afford your dreams’. Of course they could and they did! They are achievers too. We are proud of them. Because they have showed that their passion for photography is not codependent upon their economy. They have taught us that nothing can stop one from achieving their dream career, let alone economic limitations. All it takes is just a decision, ‘the’ decision. Do you want to be that star photographer that you wish to be, or not?
