The Internshala Career Scholarship for Girls is an annual award of Rs. 25,000/- meant to help advance one girl’s career in her chosen field. Instituted in 2012, the inspiration for this scholarship lies in the sad coincidence that the Delhi rape victim’s struggle for life ended on the same day that Internshala celebrates its anniversary (29th December). The scholarship is meant to recognize a girl who has fought against odds to pursue a career of her dreams in any field (Academics, Sports, Arts etc.).
Who can apply: Any girl (an Indian national) between the ages of 17 to 23 years (as of 31st December 2016), i.e. born between 1st January 1993 and 31st December 1999 with a career objective is eligible to apply.
Scholarship Amount: The scholarship is a one time reward of Rs. 25,000/- .
Number of Scholarships: 1.
Selection Criteria: Your application will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- An element of fighting against odds – these can be financial, societal, physical handicap or anything that might have put obstacles in your path.
- An element of achievement – you must have done remarkably well in your chosen field, be it academics, sports, music or arts.
- An element of purpose – the purpose for which you will use the scholarship amount.
- An element of need – everything else being the same, the scholarship would be awarded to someone who is in greater financial need.
