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. Instituted in 2013, 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.).

      Hi Shruti,

      Please enter the same details in both the columns of UG and PG.
      None of the fields can be left blank. That’s why you are not able to proceed with the application.

      In case you face any further issues, please drop a mail at icsg@internshala.com

      Thanks
