Edtech company Emeritus is launching a scholarship programme for young women through Vahani Scholarship, a non-profit organisation that educates students from less-privileged socio-economic backgrounds.
As part of this collaboration, the company will provide alumni of the Vahani Scholarship with scholarships totalling Rs 1 crore so they can enrol in the educational programmes it offers in partnership with top universities worldwide in various subjects, including data analytics, digital marketing, and technology.
Emeritus started a programme in 2021 to grant scholarships to individuals and give Vahani Scholarship alumnae one-on-one mentoring where the former’s team members provided the mentees guidance and advice.
Speaking about the scholarships for girl students, Ashwin Damera, Co-Founder and CEO of Emeritus, said, “At Emeritus, we believe that education is transformational, and we are on a mission to make it more accessible. We are proud to partner with Vahani, to help women across India learn new skills to unlock career opportunities and bridge gender gaps in skill training.”
