Career scholarship for girls launched

Internship and training platform internshala, has announced its annual scholarship, Internshala Career Scholarship for Girls (ICSG) – 2021.

ICSG is an annual award of Rs 25,000. The reward is meant to recognize a girl who has fought against odds to pursue a career of her dreams in any field – academics, sports, arts, or any other field.

The scholarship will be awarded as an allowance for pursuing an internship or undertaking a project in the chosen field, payment towards a specialized training program, special equipment, etc.

Any girl of Indian nationality between the age group of 17 to 23 years (as of 31st December 2020) is eligible to apply for the scholarship by January 15, 2021.

To apply, the girl students need to fill this form and state their career objective. The applications will be shortlisted based on four elements including the fight against odds, achievement, purpose, and need.

The application process consists of three steps –

• Online form – Submission of application.

Interview – A short-list for a telephonic interview would be announced and interviews would be conducted. You would be asked to furnish all the necessary documents and proofs before the interview.

• Referee check – After the interview, your referee (provided in the form) would be contacted for verification, after which the final winner would be selected and announced.

The inspiration for this scholarship lies in the sad coincidence that Nirbhaya’s struggle for life ended on the same day that Internshala celebrated its second anniversary (December 29, 2012). Through ICSG, Internshala has been able to help girls who after fighting against the odds and overcoming hardships, are still pursuing their careers relentlessly.
