The 6th cohort will offer 200 seats to first-year women engineering students from different strata of socio economic background across the country. The program entails a 100% scholarship that covers program fee, and an additional rewarding cash scholarship of Rs. 100,000. 

 Commenting on the announcement Shiv Venkataraman, VP/GM, Google said “We are pleased to support TalentSprint for Women Engineers Program as it addresses this industry-wide imperative, in the process bridging the gender gap while also ensuring that diversity of experiences and viewpoints shape the future of technology.''

 Dr. Santanu Paul, Founding CEO and MD of TalentSprint, said, “WE program is a testament to true democratization of education and signaling the end of an era in which pedigreed college education entitled students to a lifetime of privileges.”

In its five previous cohorts, the program has positively impacted over 950 students selected from over 100,000 applicants. The last date to apply for Cohort 6 is January 18th, 2024. For more information about the program, visit the website: we.talentsprint.com
