Internshala, the recruitment and training platform, has announced an annual scholarship, Internshala Career Scholarship for Girls (ICSG) – 2022. ICSG is an annual award of INR 25,000. The reward aims to identify the girl who fought against the odds to pursue her dream career in any field – academics, sports, arts or any other field. The scholarship is awarded as an allowance for pursuing training or carrying out a project in the chosen field, payment for a specialized training programme, special equipment, etc.
Eligibility: Any Indian girl between the age group of 17-23 years (as of December 31, 2021) is eligible to apply for the scholarship by January 15, 2022.
How to Apply: To apply, female students need to fill out an online form and state their career objective. The applications will be shortlisted based on four elements including combat odds, achievement, purpose and need.
The application process consists of three steps –
- Electronic form – application submission.
- Interview – Shortlisted for a telephone interview will be announced and interviews will be conducted. You will be required to submit all necessary documents and proofs prior to the interview.
- Verification of Judgment – After the interview, your reference (given on the form) will be contacted for verification, after which the final winner will 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 odds and overcoming hardships, are still pursuing their careers relentlessly.
