About EY Foundation Scholarship program
The Scholarship program supports education of academically bright students from humble backgrounds from the class XI till graduation in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata. Along with financial assistance, an integral part of the program is one-to-one mentoring provided by EY people.
The program is open for students with minimum 80% in Class X (75% for differently abled students) studying in low-cost private schools, private schools under economically weaker sections (EWS) quota, government-aided schools and whose family income is below INR 3 lakhs per annum. 50 percent of the seats in the program are reserved for girls.
Over the last 13 years, the program has helped change lives of over 10,000 students from underprivileged backgrounds.
Through EY Ripples, our Corporate Social Responsibility employee volunteering program launched in 2019, the students are provided ‘one-to-one coaching’ and ‘group mentoring’. EY people volunteer for at least a year to guide student(s) in developing the right-mind set, provide career guidance, and share valuable knowledge and experience. Through ‘group mentoring’ sessions, students are mentored on pre-defined topics, which are crucial for their growth and development.
