September 01, 2014: Encouraged by the overwhelming success witnessed in the first year, Siemens India is extending the Scholarship program to first-year engineering students in over 100 Government Engineering Colleges across India. Under this initiative, Siemens will provide financial support to deserving students who lack the economic means – tuition fees, allowances for books, stationery and related expenses. Additionally, Siemens will support the students with a holistic development plan. As a responsible Corporate Citizen, Siemens India endeavors to support and promote technical education through this program.

Sunil Mathur, Chief Executive Officer, Siemens India, said, “The objective of the Siemens Scholarship program is to contribute to the development of an ’Industry-ready‘ workforce. Since the initiative’s launch last year, we have received an overwhelming response from students, their parents and colleges. We wish to touch many more students this year too.”

The scholarships are aimed at supporting deserving candidates to pursue their education and launch a sustainable career in engineering, R&D or manufacturing. These students will be supported with a scholarship program throughout the four years of graduation.

The organization is conscious of its responsibilities as a corporate toward all its key stakeholders: society, employees, customers and environment. As a good corporate citizen, Siemens aims to build sustainable communities by leveraging its competencies and solutions. Siemens India’s Corporate Citizenship strategy has been firmly anchored with corporate values of Responsible, Excellent and Innovative. It focuses on three main areas: Social, Education and Science, and Environment.
