By empowering deserving girls, differently abled and transgender students we aim to build a brighter and more equitable future.”
In addition to providing financial support for education, Legrand initiated the Student Mentorship Program in 2022. 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.
