What is it about?

The Internshala Career Scholarship for Girls is an annual award of INR 25,000 meant to help advance one girl’s career in her chosen field.

The scholarship is meant to recognise a girl who has fought against odds to pursue a career of her dreams in any field (Academics, Sports, Arts, etc.)

Who can apply

Girls (Indian nationals) between the ages of 17 to 23 years (as of 31st December 2019), i.e. born between 1st January 1996 and 31st December 2002, with a career objective, are eligible to apply.

What is the purpose of this scholarship?

The scholarship is meant to advance the girl's career in some way -- be it through an allowance for pursuing an internship, undertaking a project in the chosen field or payment towards a specialised training program, special equipment, etc.

Selection criteria

The 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.

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 amount will be paid directly towards the cause at the time of the need through the referee provided in the form.
