Internshala Career Scholarship for Girls 2017
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 2012, the inspiration for this scholarship lies in the sad coincidence that the Delhi rape victim's (Nirbhaya case) 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.).
