The second batch of Siemens Scholarship Program for 60 meritorious engineering students from economically-disadvantaged families was launched on February 14, 2015. Siemens is committed to support the national skill development agenda aimed at creating a skilled and employable workforce. Following the successful launch of the Siemens Scholarship Program in 2013, the Program was extended to over 100 engineering colleges across India in its second edition.
Siemens received a total of 1142 applications from 21 states of India in the second batch of the program. 60 meritorious engineering students were provided scholarships, of which 50% are girls. The scholarship includes tuition fees, allowances for books, stationeries, hostel, additional classes and other educational expenses. Additionally, training, projects and mentorship provided by Siemens will acquaint the students with the dynamics of the industry, thereby leading to their holistic development.
Mr. Bhaskar Mandal, Country Division Lead, Process Industries & Drives Division and Digital Factory Division, Siemens India, handed over the scholarships. Speaking on the occasion Mr. Mandal said, “We are preparing you to build this nation. Our endeavor is to sow seeds and create entrepreneurs like you. Use this opportunity to the best of your abilities. Dream big, make it actionable and be passionate about it.”
Suman Kashyap from Haryana exclaimed, "I am the first girl in my village to study Engineering! I wish to thank Siemens for their support."
The launch of initiatives such as ‘Make in India’ has necessitated the development of a large, employable workforce. Siemens endeavors to contribute to the government’s efforts through the holistic development of these engineering students through the Siemens Scholarship Program.
