BIMTECH student Mahima shares her experience on Prudential Foundation Global Citizens Program
|The International Office, BIMTECH, provides all 2nd Year students the opportunity to apply for The Prudential Foundation Global Citizens Program. Through this program, The Washington Center (TWC) for Internships and Academic Seminars offers 20 scholarships sponsored by The Prudential Foundation to students from universities in Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. The program components include an Internship with private, non- profit, governmental and non- governmental sectors, an Academic course, a Leadership Forum and a Civic Engagement Project. It helps students gain valuable experience and insight into possible career paths.
Due to an overwhelming response from students resulting in an increasing number of applications every year, TWC puts students through a rigorous application process. After the first stage of application in BIMTECH, only a few students move to the second stage and apply to TWC Only highly qualified applicants are contacted for an interview. In order to move forward, applicants that pass the interview are asked to complete the Washington Center online application.

After thorough assessment, successful applicants are then contacted for a telephonic interview followed by a face to face interview. The process is streamlined and efficient with frequent and timely communication on the part of the International Office at BIMTECH, TWC and The Prudential Foundation, making it easy for students to interact with them.
As a final year student, I find myself standing at the cusp of a transition from being a student to being part of the corporate environment. This internship holds for me, the promise of learning more, from some of the best minds in business and its management. TWC, with its vast network across the world would afford me the opportunity to interact with people across cultures and develop my interpersonal skills while working with them. I had applied to the program with a dream to experience the diversity and global exposure that TWC is revered for and cannot wait to live the dream.
I am extremely grateful to the International Office for giving me this platform and esteemed faculty members for their support, blessings and belief. I am looking forward to my semester in Washington and would encourage all the 1st Year students to apply for the program in the coming year.
