Internshala, the internship and training platform, has announced its annual scholarship, Internshala Career Scholarship for Girls (ICSG-2020). ICSG is an annual award of INR 25,000/- which is meant to help advance one girl’s career in her chosen field be it 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 Indian girl between the age group of 17 to 23 years is eligible to apply for the scholarship by 15th January 2020. To apply, the girls 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 inspiration for this scholarship lies in the sad coincidence that that Nirbhaya’s struggle for life ended on the same day that Internshala celebrated its 2nd anniversary (29th December 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.
The winner of ICSG-2019 was Gazala Praveen from Sikta, West Champaran in Bihar. Gazala belongs to a family that still has the mindset of not educating girls and marrying them off early. Despite social and economical obstacles, she never gave up on her education.
