Announcing 25% Scholarship for all girl students
UPES declares 2020 as the Year of Women Empowerment
What is Shakti?
Shakti is a state of mind, an attitude, a force to change the way the world perceives the strength of a woman.
She has the power of knowledge to turn her ideas into reality, stand up for what is right, seek progress, and emerge as an agent of change for the society.
The UPES offer of 25 % scholarship on tuition fees to all girl students, across all programmes from the year 2020, is one step closer to reinforcing the belief in Shakti, in accelerating the gender equality journey, and in empowering women from classroom to the boardroom!

Beyond offering all girls students a 25% Scholarship in Year 2020, UPES has been working towards empowering women of all age groups through its CSR wing. It has undertaken several initiatives that facilitate women to focus on their development through formal education, skill training, and personality grooming.
Under this project, meritorious girls from underprivileged neighboring villages are assisted financially with their education and provided opportunities and platforms for their overall development. Fondly referred as the ‘Daughters of UPES’, they are mentored by UPES-CSR faculty and student volunteers through summer school training programs, participation in local competitions, and awareness trips to the various Schools at UPES.
Training & Development
At UPES, we strive to cultivate an inclusive, gender-diverse environment that fosters the development and growth of women leaders.
Through the Shakti program, we aim to help women realise their potential, focus on their growth, and contribute to the nation. An intensive selection process handpicks a batch of 30 women employees and enrolls them in the meticulously designed 9-month program focusing on adaptive skills, emotional intelligence, business communication, and team management.
