Societe Generale Global Solution Centre (SG GSC), a subsidiary of the French banking and financial services company Societe Generale, has announced the fifth edition of their unique scholarship programme — ‘SG GSC India Talent Scholarship’.

This CSR programme focuses on helping talented students, who have financial difficulties, pursue higher education. The scholarship covers the total course fee, allowing the students to concentrate entirely on their studies.

Since its launch in 2010, the SG GSC India talent scholarship programme has provided scholarships to 63 students from premier institutes such as Indian Institute of Management, (IIM) Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Kozhikode, Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, and International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore.

During its 150th anniversary celebrations in 2014, SG GSC enhanced its programme to include a larger number of beneficiaries. The fifth year saw the programme covering 18 students, the maximum number till date.

The selected students are also assigned a one-to-one mentor from the company’s senior leadership team who acts as a friend, philosopher and guide for the student.

It does not in any way obligate the students to join SG GSC after completing their course, thereby allowing them to follow a career of their choice. Visit here for further information.
