Introduction About Schaeffler India Hope Engineering Scholarship 2019-20 Program
As a responsible corporate citizen, Schaeffler India Hope Engineering Scholarship 2019-20 Program 2019 is a CSR initiative aimed at helping promising youth especially young women to make a career in the fields of science and engineering.
Engineers are a crucial part of any country’s progress and India is no exception to this with the most youth population in the world. To better encourage underprivileged youth to enter and excel at these fields, Schaeffler India would like to provide Scholarships for underprivileged in the fields of science and engineering.
As a career option, Engineering continues to remain one of the most popular career choices for students in India. Out of the estimated 13 Lakh Engineering aspirants each year, there are thousands of students who have to forego their dream of becoming an engineer, just because they cannot afford the exorbitant fees.
For young women especially, whether they are earning their degree for the first time or going back to School for a career change. Women are attending college in numbers that outnumber men in many academic fields. In the Science field, however, many women face the challenge of being in the minority in their class.
This program aims to identify, groom and encourage engineering talent for a sector that historically has imbalanced gender discrimination.
