Three winners will each receive 1,00,000 INR to put towards their university education in STEM

GURUGRAM, India—March 12, 2024—Navisite, part of Accenture, today announced the three winners of its second annual Navisite’s Next Steminist scholarship program in India. The program is designed to help close the gender gap in technology and encourage young women to pursue their dreams in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). The three winners are Nisha Khati from Bengaluru, Karnataka; Anchal Mourya from Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh; and Bhanu Yadavalli from Khammam, Telangana. Each winner will receive 1,00,000 INR to put towards their university education in STEM.

“We’re thrilled to recognize these accomplished and deserving young women in our second annual Steminist India scholarship program,” said Tejal Munagekar, managing director of Navisite India, part of Accenture. “It is our honor to be able to support their educational goals with financial assistance as they embark on their journeys and work to achieve their career aspirations in STEM.”

Since Navisite’s Steminist scholarship program launched in the U.S. in 2021, the company has awarded nearly $100,000 in scholarships. In 2022, Navisite expanded the program to India, offering two needs-based scholarships to eligible female candidates who are currently enrolled full-time at an accredited college or university. This year, the company expanded the program to honor three women.

The three winners plan to use the scholarship towards their education in data engineering, medicine, and software engineering, respectively:

  • Nisha Khati attends Sai Vidya Institute of Technology, where she is studying to become a data engineer.
