Vedica Scholars Programme for Women Partners with Agnes Scott College: Announces Vedica Scholarship of $20,000 Per Year for Undergraduate Students
New Delhi, Delhi, India

To build on the synergy between the mission and vision of the Vedica Scholars Programme for Women (New Delhi, India) and Agnes Scott College (Georgia, US), we are proud to announce a partnership between the two educational institutions - the Vedica Programme at Agnes Scott College. This programme draws inspiration from the highly successful Vedica Scholars Programme for Women launched last year in India. Vedica is a unique alternative to the traditional MBA programme located in New Delhi. It aims to create a cadre of successful working women professionals for the 21st century.
Ranked as one of the top 20 women’s colleges in the US and ranked 67 amongst all colleges across the US, Agnes Scott College (ASC) is a 127-year old independent undergraduate college for women. The shared vision towards empowering professional working women through an innovative and pioneering approach to management education is the distinctive feature of the Vedica-Agnes Scott partnership. By offering a major and minor in Business Management, Agnes Scott is one of the few liberal arts schools in the US that also focuses on professional education.
This Programme is a unique scholarship opportunity for promising young Indian women to receive an exclusive four-year undergraduate degree at a leading women’s college in the US. With a Vedica Scholarship of $20,000 per year available for 10 deserving candidates, the Programme will include ASC’s reputed BA in liberal arts, its signature SUMMIT leadership development program and a uniquely crafted concentration on Contemporary India.
Since 1889, Agnes Scott College has inspired students to discover new opportunities, new challenges and new strengths through a liberal arts education in a setting dedicated to women. A Vedica Scottie – a Vedica Scholar who will also be a ‘Scottie’ (i.e. student at Agnes Scott) – will gain a BA in Liberal Arts in a major of her choice during her time at Agnes Scott. To address the gap that Indian students face while studying in the US, Vedica Scotties will study a curated concentration in ‘Contemporary India’ to keep in touch with the socio-political context of India. This concentration will broadly cover courses in Indian Political Economy, Indian Public and Foreign Policy, Understanding Gender and Leadership in India, and Development and Democracy to ensure that Indian students to gain an added advantage when they return to work in India, and also to become effective and strategic global leaders.
In addition to the course curriculum, Vedica Scotties will also receive one-on-one mentorship from inspiring role models in the US and support for summer internships and eventual career placement in India. To capitalise on the growth of professional opportunities in India, and the gap of opportunities for international students in the US, the Vedica Programme will ensure that students are placed in the right sector or industry in India at the end of the four-year undergraduate programme.
Applications open for the Fall Session 2016. Classes commence August 14th 2016.
