Progress, the trusted provider of infrastructure software, today announced that applications are open for the 2024 Progress Software Akanksha Scholarship for Women in STEM in India. Completed submissions will be accepted here until April 12, 2024.
Launched in 2021, the Akanksha Scholarship offers a renewable four-year scholarship of up to INR 1,50,000 per year, intended for tuition, fees and other educational costs. It is available to women who are residing in India and are enrolled in the first year of an undergraduate program in the fields of Computer Science Engineering (CSE), Computer Science Information Technology (CSIT) or related courses. Alongside academic excellence, candidates should also embody virtues of integrity, perseverance and leadership.
“Over the years, we have witnessed a positive shift in the representation of women in technology, yet there remains a pressing need to further bridge the gender gap in STEM fields,” said Girija Kolagada, VP, Engineering, Progress. “By providing financial assistance, we aim to create a nurturing ecosystem that not only values but actively promotes diversity and inclusion in the tech industry. We are continually inspired by the remarkable talent of our scholarship recipients in India so far, who are not only achieving their academic goals in STEM but are also opening the door to the future generation of women in technology. Their success stories inspire us to continue supporting women’s journey in the tech world.”
As part of Progress’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, Progress for Tomorrow, the Women in STEM Scholarship series aims to increase the global presence of women in the fields of computer science, software engineering, information technology and/or computer information systems. The global series includes three separate scholarship programs for women in STEM in the US, Bulgaria and India.
