Global Scholars Program (GSP)

The Eklavya Global Scholars’ Program (GSP) is a dedicated mentorship initiative designed to support first-generation university students from historically underrepresented communities in pursuing quality higher education at global universities.

Over the last two cohorts of our Master's and PhD programs, we have worked with more than 150 emerging scholars across India throughout their application processes.

These cohorts have been exceptionally successful, with more than 75 scholars securing admissions to prestigious universities such as -

In our pilot cohort (2022-23)

Nearly 20 scholars were awarded fully funded scholarships, including reknowned awards like the Chevening, Commonwealth Masters and Shared, Erasmus Mundus, GREAT Scholarship, National Overseas Scholarship (NOS), various state government scholarships like Shahu Maharaj Overseas, Marang Gomke Jaipal Singh Munda Overseas Scholarship, ifa CCP Germany, as well as university-based fully funded scholarships.

We anticipate that the number of aspiring scholar applicants receiving funding for their studies will double this year.
