This program is designed to nurture future women leaders by offering holistic development through mentoring, building confidence, providing life skills, soft skills, and career guidance. Over 50 beneficiaries of the Legrand Scholarship have completed their mentorship programs, and fresh batches are welcomed annually.
Legrand partners with Buddy4Study, a reputed organization, to facilitate the application and selection process for the scholarship program. Interested students can enroll through the Buddy4Study portal.
