BAPS encourages youths around the world to pursue higher education. BAPS offers scholarships, grants, and academic guidance to youths pursuing graduate and post-graduate degrees. Bhagwan Swaminarayan encouraged His sadhus and devotees to study. He would send them to Kashi, the academic hub for further education at that time. Today, Pramukh Swami Maharaj motivates youths to pursue education through personal consultations and various means of assistance. By assisting youths to further their education, BAPS also helps to nurture individuals that are better positioned to contribute to their community.
