A majority of working professionals in India are currently working at levels which are way below their competence and have a need for ongoing professional development. As part of its CSR program, 24x7 Learning has instituted this scholarship to help motivate deserving candidates to take up higher education without having to take a break from work. This scholarship will be offered to students based on their scores in their degree examination.
Commenting on the scholarship, Mr. KS Karthik, CEO, 24x7 learning said, “The 24x7 Learning Academic Excellence Scholarship is a dedicated fund set up under our executive learning and development initiative to encourage continuous learning and excellence among working professionals.”
