US body announces scholarship for Indian women

A top US body in international education and global investment banking has announced a scholarship and mentoring programme for the Indian women university students in science and technology-related fields. Under the scholarship – ‘WeTech Goldman Sachs Scholars’ – announced by the Institute of International Education (IIE) and Goldman Sachs, 25 Indian women will receive a merit-based USD 1,500 scholarships for the 2017-18 school year and be connected with an experienced mentor from Goldman Sachs for a six-month mentorship from June through December 2017, a statement said.

Engaging women at various stages from their academic years to a career is a critical step in addressing the gender gap often seen in the technology industry, said Shubha Iyer, managing director in the Technology division at Goldman Sachs in Bengaluru.
