About the Programme

  • Application Deadline: July 6, 20204
  • The programme is free of cost
  • Individuals from marginalised or underrepresented communities in India are invited to apply.

The India Graduate Mentorship Programme (IGMP) 2024-25 is a mentoring initiative that seeks to help Indian learners from marginalised communities apply to universities abroad for graduate studies (masters and PhD).

We provide both technical (depending on the course/ discipline of interest to the mentee) as well as affinity-based mentorship to support our mentees holistically. We help learners with university and funding/ scholarship applications, and also provide capacity-building support.

The IGMP, launched in 2022, has been a resounding success, witnessing remarkable growth and helping hundreds of students secure admissions to top universities and prestigious scholarships. During the 2022-23 academic year, our mentees collectively received an impressive 300+ admission offers from top universities like the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Harvard University, Yale University, New York University, SOAS University of London, London School of Economics and Political Science, University College London, and John Hopkins University, among others. They also secured 30+ prestigious fully-funded scholarships, including the Chevening Scholarship, Commonwealth Shared Scholarship, Felix Scholarship, Inlaks Scholarship, Clarendon Scholarship, and Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Scholarship.

The 2023-24 cohort of IGMP mentees has continued this legacy of excellence and success. As of now, our mentees have received 240+ admission offers, successfully making it to prestigious universities such as the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Harvard University, Columbia University, University of Melbourne, SOAS University of London, London School of Economics and Political Science, and University College London. Several of them have also received coveted fully-funded scholarships like the Rhodes Scholarship, Chevening Scholarship, Felix Scholarship, Inlaks Scholarship, Charles Wallace India Trust Scholarship, Oxford-India Centre for Sustainable Development Scholarship, Erasmus Mundus Scholarship, among others.

We are excited to continue IGMP for yet another year, and hope that we are able to help more learners from marginalised backgrounds achieve their academic dreams in 2024-25!
