TalentSprint, a leading EdTech platform and NSE group company, today announced the launch of the third cohort of the pioneering Women Engineers Program (WE) with support from Google.
TalentSprint WE program seeks to address this gender imbalance by selecting, training, and nurturing gifted women engineering students from across India, with diverse academic pedigrees and socio-economic backgrounds to fulfil their potential in the field of software engineering.
The first two cohorts received 27,000 applications, of which 220 participants were invited to join the program.
Till date, more than 50 leading companies such as Google, Amazon, Flipkart, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Accenture, Adobe, Capgemini, Oracle, Gojek, Mathworks, and others have extended prestigious internships or job offers to these participants, at compensation levels 150% higher than the market median for entry-level engineers.
Admission to the third cohort will be through a rigorous multi-stage selection process, and students invited to join this cohort may receive partial or full financial aid, based on their merit and financial backgrounds.
