Why did Internshala launch this career scholarship for girls?
The inspiration for this scholarship lies in the sad coincidence that that Nirbhaya’s struggle for life ended on the same day that Internshala celebrated its 2nd anniversary (December 29, 2012).
Through ICSG, Internshala has been able to help girls who after fighting against the odds and overcoming hardships, are still pursuing their careers relentlessly.
Who won the Internshala career scholarship for girls last year?
The winner of ICSG-2019 was Gazala Praveen from Sikta, West Champaran in Bihar.
Gazala belongs to a family that still has the mindset of not educating girls and marrying them off early. Despite social and economical obstacles, she never gave up on her education.
