4 state students picked for Stanford programme

Bengaluru, Sep 13, 2016, DHNS 2:05 IST
Four students from the state have been selected for Stanford University’s ‘University Innovation Fellows Program’, an initiative that aims to empower students from across the globe to become “agents of change”.

Priyanka Srivastava, a second-year computer science engineering student of CMRIT is one of the four selected students. In order to be selected, the students had to go through various rounds of scrutiny. The students were first asked about problems in the country that moved them. They were then asked about some of the work they had already done in their college.

“I made a video on farmers’ suicide in India, something I feel strongly about. Then I made another video critiquing the education system in out country that relies too much on books and less on practical knowledge,” she said. Two other students from her institute and another under Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Shriya Humkeri were also selected. A total of 20 from the country were selected.

The selected candidates will undergo a six-week online-based training. After the six-week training, they will get a chance to stay at the Google campus in  USA and undergo four days of final training. The programme also comes with a $4,000 scholarship from Google.
