India, 13th April 2022: Kool Kanya—a well-known digital-first community-led platform that enables women to build thriving careers by empowering them with career advice and new-age practical skills—is conducting a 6-months long ‘Scholarship Program’ this April. This programme intends to upskill women through multiple courses cutting across various avenues and boost their upward growth trajectory in their careers.
The woman-oriented platform has always sought to bridge the gap between women and the careers they love by bolstering their professional growth through a plethora of resources, offering deep and relevant insights and a range of upskilling workshops and programmes. With this objective in mind, Kool Kanya has brought forth a comprehensive ‘Scholarship Program’ that aims to offer 10K worth of courses for free learning for 2 months
How it works
The Kool Kanya team will upload a post on their Instagram handle (@kool_kanya) asking the audience why they deserve this scholarship. In turn, to apply and stand a chance to be selected, the interested candidates must merely comment underneath the post highlighting how they are well-deserving of the ‘Scholarship Program.’ On the basis of the stories, an internal team from Kool Kanya will select 3 candidates for the 2 months of free learning programme conducted by diverse industry experts like Diksha Sharma, Tarini Manchanda, Kajal Kothari, Dhruv Prakash, Sharin Bhatti, Shivani Krishan, Debabrati Roy, amongst others
Vanshika Goenka Misra, Founder & CEO of Kool Kanya, said, “Kool Kanya has always nurtured an ecosystem that empowers women with practical skills and knowledge to thrive in the careers they aspire to have in today’s dynamic professional world. While our premium learning platform, PowerPass, has seen 1000+ women signing up for expert-led boot camps and masterclasses, with this Scholarship Program, we are taking a positive step toward effectively reaching out to even more women and giving them an opportunity to learn and grow in their professional journeys.
The recent wave of digital transformation is seeing a rise in demand for new-age tech-enabled skills, which were earlier considered niche. With courses like Content Creation, Deck Design, Photography, Design Strategy, and much more in store, Kool Kanya’s ‘Scholarship Programme’ is a gateway for women to arm themselves with these new skills that will only continue to grow in demand without having to spend. Not only upskilling, but women can also expand on their existing knowledge of the skills and equip themselves for the job they want and ace every opportunity that comes their way.
Around 250 companies have signed up for Kool Kanya’s ‘Get Work’ programs and ‘Job Board’ on its community, comprising over 250k women. From its vast community of women, which includes students, employees and freelancers to aspiring entrepreneurs, leaders and those looking to get back in the workforce—anybody can apply for the ‘Scholarship Program,’ which begins from 12th April 2022 onwards.
