ICSG 2015

Applications for ICSG-2015 have been closed. The short-list for interviews will be announced on 20th February 2015. Keep checking our Facebook page.

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 Jyote,

      Thank you for the appreciation.
      Your reference should ideally be your college Dean or Principal or the head of the organization you’re working in. Your scholarship amount will be routed through your reference.

      Thanks

    I am a 3rd year Engineering Student. I have given my 5th sem exams in DEC 14.

    What should be entered in the following field? I get my results in CGPA format. So should i enter the cumulative pointer of all the semesters till now or the pointer of latest sem ie 4th sem?

    Graduation(Bachelors)
    “Percentage marks or CGPA obtained ”
    Please provide latest available academic performance record. If in %, write 76 and if CGPA, write as 7.6/10 for example. Please do not add the % symbol.
