Our Bureau New Delhi | Updated on December 23, 2014 Published on December 23, 2014

Societe Generale Global Solution Centre (SG GSC), a subsidiary of the French banking and financial services company Societe Generale has announced the 5th edition of its scholarship programme - 'SG GSC India Talent Scholarship'.

The programme focuses on facilitating the higher education of talented students with financial difficulties. The scholarship covers the total course fee, allowing the students to concentrate entirely on their studies.

Since its launch in 2010, the SG GSC India talent scholarship programme has provided scholarships to 63 deserving students from premier institutes, such as Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA), Indian Institute of Management, Tiruchirappalli (IIMT) Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIMB), Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode (IIMK), Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (ISB), and International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B).

During its 150th anniversary celebrations in 2014, SG GSC enhanced its programme to include a larger number of beneficiaries. The 5th year saw the programme covering 18 students.

The mentorship programme, which ensures every student is mentored by a senior leader from SG GSC, remains one of the mainstays this year as well.

The scholarship programme does not in any way obligate the students to join SG GSC after completing their course thereby allowing them to follow a career of their choice.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

We are trying our best to ensure the newspaper reaches your hands every day. We have also ensured that even if your paper is not delivered, you can access BusinessLine in the e-paper format – just as it appears in print. Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
